Esotericism Part 5 Sec 07





''Wholeness'' = a balance {foundation?} of something? 'Horizon' symbol? If so, what constellation would represent it? Any planets within it - to define a start point?

Continued: Refresher: "A round stone is a symbol of the Self...The lions a royal couple, are in themselves a symbol of totality {'16' ?}. In medieval symbolism, the ''philosopher's stone'' {a pre-eminent symbol of man's wholeness} is represented as a pair of lions or as a human couple riding on lions. Symbolically, this points to the fact that often the urge toward individuation appears in a veiled form, hidden in the overwhelming passion one may feel for another person. {In fact, passion that goes beyond the natural measure of love ultimately aims at the mystery of becoming whole, and this is why one feels, when one has fallen passionately in love, that becoming one with the other person is the only worthwhile goal of one's life}. As long as the image of totality in this dream expresses itself in the form of a pair of lions , it is still contained in such overwhelming passion. But when lion and lioness have turned into some king and queen, the urge to individuate has reached the level of conscious realization, and can now be understood by the ego as being the real goal of life." ['Man and His Symbols' / C. Jung].

Question. Has Jehovah {Yahweh?} been seen stood/riding on a 'lion' ?

"Ishtar is the Mesopotamian East Semitic { Akkadian, Assyrian and Babylonian} goddess of fertility, love, war, sex, and power. She is the counterpart to the earlier attested Sumerian Inanna, and the cognate for the later attested Northwest Semitic Aramean goddess Astarte..." {Wiki/Ishtar].

The one word that has not been used in the above 'statement' = ''vegetative'' - its most important in order to define 'something'...

Cersei / Jaime Lannister ? {Game of Thrones}.

'Terrace of the Lions'. Delos.

"In the absence of a native Israelite visual art - either because the second commandment was interpreted as vetoing all images, or because of a lack of talent, or both - the entire scheme of decoration, too, was Phoenician in character. Hiram dispatched bronze and gold for the purpose; and the two giant cherubim of gold plated olive wood, whose wings roofed the Ark in the Holy of Holies, resembled the fantastic composite figures found at Byblus and Megiddo, which displayed a human head and a lions body and wings of a bird, and were sacred to Ashtoteth." [Chapter 8, 'The History of Ancient Israel' by M. Grant]. Link to other ''imaginative'' ['mystical'?] forms such as the Sphinx; the Griffin and Unicorn. Find them to understand them - rather than evaluate; only on first impressions.

Side note: ''In ancient Greece, alliances between cities were sometimes a matter of life and death....One such bond existed between the city of Teos, which was settled around 1000BC, by groups from mainland Greece on the western coast of what is now Turkey, and its colony Abdera, on the Thracian coast of northeastern {'N/E'} Greece.....Abdera was resettled by refugees from Teos, who fled their city in the 6th century BC to escape a Persian invasion....Around 500BC Teos joined alliance against Persian rule  - a rebellion known as the Ionian revolt. Teos suffered badly in the Battle of Lade {494BC}, and the people of Abdera came to the aid of their parent city. The cities remained close allies after the war, joining their legal systems and circulating the same currency - silver coins, often stamped with the image of a griffin.'' [Page 35 'Archaeology' / Jan-Feb 2023].

Continued: ''The Greeks sometimes identified Asteria with the Phoenician goddess Ashtarte. It is not known if the Greek goddess was in fact derived from the Phoenician. However, other Greek gods worshipped around the Aegean, such as Melikertes (Phoenician Melqart) and Ino-Leukothea were indeed imported from the East.''

Something extra: "The Arkites who are mentioned in Genesis and also the Tell Amarna tablets of 1400 BC were an ancient Canaanite people well known for their worship of the moon goddess Astarte, or Ishtar, to whom the acacia wood arc was sacred.


A resting place for a 'stranger'. Potters Field? Question. If anything is found - who would have been responsible - Hebrews or Christians OR the collective effort? Question 2. What would that imply? Universal knowledge common to all? In other words 'BROTHERS and SISTERS' regardless of religions?

A more detailed account [in relation to the overall subject] will be found - 'Woman's Mysteries: Ancient and Modern' by M. Esther Harding. Within chapter 10 are clues not only to the above but information on why such historical figures [such as Herod] are used within this same subject; or more importantly; what they represent, [in the above example that would be ''wasteland'']. Proving once again [if and when this subject; goes mainstream] - the viability of the material that becomes the ''head of the corner'' that defines this subjects 'foundations' ['framework'].

Question. 'Head of the serpent' ?

For a further head scratch - put ''stranger'' in the usual box.

"I know now that my teacher is the holy man who gave the wise warning. I humbly made this confession to my father. 'Oh, if i could only find him!' My longing was sincere, for one day the saint arrived unheralded. 'Enough of tiger taming.' He spoke with calm assurance. 'Come with me; i will teach you to subdue the beasts of ignorance in jungles of the human mind.' I was initiated into the spiritual path by my saintly guru. He opened my soul doors, rusty and resistant with long disuse. Hand in hand, we soon set out for my training in the Himalayas." [Extract from the chapter entitled the 'The Tiger Swami' from the book 'Autobiography of a Yogi'. Mentioned elsewhere]. Try ''unhinged'' in relation to ''hinged''.

'Eleven' to enlarge.

For a further head scratch - why ''unheralded?''

"Many years ago the English psychologist, F. W. H. Meyes, suggested that - ''hidden in the depth of our being is a rubbish heap as well as a treasure house''.

"I will give you the treasures of darkness and the secret places." {Isaiah 45,7}.

"...beasts of ignorance'' in relation to 'the beast that rises in the east'. S/E or S/W?

'Fingers' and 111 { 'onehundred and eleven'} - to enlarge.


Knock 'three' times. Dogs?

Any dog?

And/or: "What do you think about religion, Anna? Can one speak of god while drinking beer?" i asked...''How can i speak of god?'' she retorted. ''I don't know him. I don't know anyone well, except myself. I know that I've got both the angel and beast in me, and that the two of them are not looking for the same nourishment. If i listened to only the beast, I'd live like an animal. If my beast obeys the angel, it teaches me what my beast does not know...'By angel', i suggested, 'do you mean soul?'..." Soul or angel, whatever you wish: my eyes do not see him, but my heart knows him and is often looking for his company. I cant doubt him, because he shows me the way, like a dog leading a blind person..." ['Journey into the Light'].

Side note: ''Angelet is a small gold coin once used in England....''

Begins at the left foot of Orion.

A working example: ''Coming back from Dubai was like my tail between my legs - to put all that effort in to get a loss was very deflating. BUT who's there when i get out of the ring? - my wife, my son, my mum and dad and brothers - IT was THEN i saw it for what it was. Although a shit moment in my life, it was also a lovely moment in my life with my family. Sometimes it just takes a little nudge to realize what you have around you'' ['Eddie Hall: The Beast versus the Mountain'].

Somewhere outside old jerusalam.

Somewhere outside ancient Jerusalem. In Roman times some say it became a rubbish heap; fires forever burning. Others say; it was just a fable; a myth; past down through the course of generations. Question. Why? Could they not think up a better one?

"So, in my appeal to the most worthy, and in exposing myself to all the dangers and anathemas which threaten revealers, i believe myself to have done a great and useful thing, directing the breath of 'god' living in humanity ['divine bit' link. This readers input], upon the social chaos, and priests and kings for the world to come. A thing is not just because god wills it, but god wills it because it is just, said the angel of the schools. It is as if he said: The absolute is reason. Reason is self existent; it is because it is, and not because we suppose it. It is, or nothing is; and how should one desire anything to exist apart from reason? Madness itself does not occur without it. Reason is necessity, is law, is the rule of all liberty and the direction of all initiative. If god exists, it is by reason. The conception of an absolute god outside or independent of reason - is the idol of black magic and the phantom of the fiend. The demon is death masquerading in the tattered garments of life, the spectre of Hirrenkesept throned upon the rubbish of ruined civilizations, and concealing a loathsome nakedness..." [ Taken from the book by E. Levi].

'Devil in the details'.

N.B. Some say Herod himself became 'mad'.

"Madness lies in fixity of thought, and not in fluidity." [Quote from within the book 'Where is Saint George'].

"...So of our thoughts, when it has decided to make the leap."

" order to 'see' rightly one has to look rightly. And to look rightly means to endeavour to see through the mists of the phantoms of things." [Quotes from within the book by Tomberg].

From Foreign Minister to Prime Minister - by way of the 'old boy network'? i.e., the deal done with the parsons daughter: Vote for me with all your boarding school mates...and i will give you...? Question. Is that how the PROFESSION of politics works?

"The 'antichrist' being the phantom of the whole of mankind; the being engendered through the whole historical evolution of humanity. He is the ''superman'' [Friedrich Nietzsche link] who haunts the consciousness of all those who seek to elevate themselves through their own effort - without grace." [Same book]. Try ''grace''.

Side note: A {working?} example {i.e., if only in the Old Testament sense of the 'word'}: "I will deliver thee into the hand of them that thou hatest, into the hand of them from whom thy mind is alienated. And they shall deal with thee hatefully, and shall take away all thy labour - and shall leave thee naked and bare: and the nakedness of the 'whoredoms' shall be discovered....I will do thee things unto thee, because thou hast gone a whoring after the heathen and because thou art polluted with their idols..." [Ezekiel 23:29-30].

Try Gog/Magog. And/or ''forgetting/remembering''. All as a means....?

Continued: "Solomon lost his divinely bestowed power after becoming besotted with a foreign [stranger?] woman. He was told by the priests of 'her land' that he could not 'sleep' with her until he had made a sacrifice to the god Moloch. This he did and subsequently committed further idolatry by building temples to two other gods, Baal and Rapha. The testament of Solomon ends with Solomon saying he wrote down his account for the benefit of others who might be inspired and aided by his knowledge, but warned off the path by his own ultimate downfall - 'So that you may find grace forever and ever." [Chapter one, 'Grimoires: A History of 'Magic' Books' by O. Davies]. Solomon who was found dead after a 'gnat' ate through his 'staff'.

"Gnawing = The act of a person or thing that gnaws. To waste or wear away; corrode; erode..."

"An act of divine 'magic' - or grace - is necessary to accomplish the infusion of life {'untouched by fire' link?} into that which is 'dead'." [Extract from the book by Tomberg].

abRemember - no less than Solomon; one of the main [patriarchs?] - characters of the Old Testament. Someone who took a ''turn for the worse''. Proving that regardless of what ones first impressions are [of say a subject?] a certain light shines through. In other words the subject has sincerity and depth to it - including - in the moral sense. No matter what status or position any individual may attain - those basic principles still apply. Those eternal ones. Represented [in this subject] with the 'skulls cap' as seen with [as examples] Ptah and Imhotep. Positive has to succeed over negative over a period of time - day by day. Otherwise no 'grace' is achieved. Top down in relation to bottom up.

Hence: Forgetting {negatives} Remembering {positives}.


Question. A universal or local one?

Cubit? 'A Sting in the tail'. or should that be 'tale'?

Found with the Qurna Queen and child: ''under a rocky outcrop {'overhang'?} on the north side of the valley at Thebes.'' Lozenge shape?

From a different perspective: "Know also, my child, that this disease of laziness and negligence gradually undermines with its poison {'Uraeus'?} not only the first small roots out of which virtuous habits may grow, but even, those which are deep rooted and serve as a foundation of the whole order of righteous life. As a worm {or rat?} gradually gnaws at the root of a tree, so negligence, if it persists, insensibly wears away, and destroys the very nerves of spiritual life. Through it the 'devil' manages to spread his nets {'153' ?}  and set the snares of temptations for every man; and exerts particular care and sly cunning in the case of those who are zealous in spiritual life, knowing that a lazy and negligent man easily submits to lusts and falls, as it is written: 'The soul of the sluggard desireth, and hath nothing' {Prov. xiii, 4}. So be ever watchful - take good care of everything good, as it behoves a courageous warrior...." [Chapter 20 'How to Overcome Negligence from the book 'Unseen Warfare' / edited by Nicodemus of the Holy Mountain and revised by Theophan the Recluse].

REFRESHER: ’'A symbol is an energy-evoking and direct agent’'. Think about it. In relation to those positives/ negatives within a ‘river’. [ J.Campbell. ’Flight of the Wild Gander’. Chapter five. Part seven]. That link to the word ''archetype.''

''According to folklore, worms begin to emerge from the earth at the spring equinox.'' ['The Chase'].

'Conception' to enlarge.


A working example: ''The 6th century Pope Gregory the Great assumed that the 'seven' demons were the result of a sinful life. He identified those seven with seven vices that Mary eventually overcomes, living virtuously....The Greek tradition also reflects on her spiritual battle against passions. The 12th century writer, Theophanus Kerameus wrote: 'Let no one tink that Mary had seven demons. But it is just as the gifts of the Holy Spirit are synonymously called seven spirits, as the great Isiah numbered them {Is 11:2-3}. Thus the negative ENERGIES are called 'demons' - Despondency, thriftness, contempt, envy, falsehood, greed, and every passion is an analogy with the demon that begat it.'' [Page 59 'Mary Magdalene: Insights from Ancient Magdala'/ J. Rishtine].

Question. 'Passions  of Christ'? If so, what does that say for the 'relationship'. In other words Real or Symbolic?

'Mysteries of the Dark Moon' / Demetra George.

Side note: Chapter entitled the 'The seven Pillars of Wisdom' from the book 'Mystery of Numbers' / A. Schimmel.

Where have you seen it before?

'Bulls eye' = Eye of the needle?

As seen from a different perspective, {I.e.,figuratively speaking}: "The true understanding of the symbolic replacement of skullcap by crown must be found in the transformation which produce a 'new thinking' being. It is only after purification and coronation that the 'king' has the right to officiate in the temple. The true meaning of the royal diadem lies in this figurative separation 'of a part' of the cranium. In ancient Egypt, the royal diadem is designated by 'mh', which is also the word for the cubit of measure. The circular line of the diadem is indeed the very measure of the royal cubit; for each man, it shows the measure of his {her?} own cubit." ['Sacred Science']. Try ''cubit''.

Alexanders elephant scalp {skull cap]?

'Stamp of the feminine'. Real or symbolic?

"The word derives from the Greek διάδημα diádēma, "band" or "fillet",[1] from διαδέω diadéō, "I bind round", or "I fasten".[2] The term originally referred to the embroidered white silk ribbon, ending in a knot and two fringed strips often draped over the shoulders, that surrounded the head of the king to denote his authority. Such ribbons were also used to crown victorious athletes in important sports games in antiquity. It was later applied to a metal crown, generally in a circular or "fillet" shape. For example, the crown worn by Queen Juliana of the Netherlands was a diadem, as was that of a baron later (in some countries surmounted by three globes). The ancient Celts were believed to have used a thin, semioval gold plate called a mind (Old Irish) as a diadem.[3] Some of the earliest examples of these types of crowns can be found in ancient Egypt, from the simple fabric type to the more elaborate metallic type, and in the Aegean world.

A diadem is also a jewelled ornament in the shape of a half crown, worn by women and placed over the forehead (in this sense, also called tiara). In some societies, it may be a wreath worn around the head. The ancient Persians wore a high and erect royal tiara encircled with a diadem. Hera, queen of the Greek gods, wore a golden crown called the diadem."

Back to the beginning...


Common factors?

Omphalos stone: Hive shape?

"This valley was admittedly a horrible place; it started out as a location were children were sacrificed to the owl-god Moloch. Over time, the ritual murders stopped and Gehenna became the main garbage dump for the entire city. Dead bodies and all types of filth were routinely burned there. Gehenna was therefore a necessary place for cleansing and purifying the land through 'fire'. This appears to be the deeper meaning of the metaphor Jehoshua was using. The third definition of the word Gehenna in the 'World English Dictionary' is 'a place or state of pain and torment'...Many people still refer to karma as something you have to 'burn off,' and this appears to be a direct continuation of the symbolism used by Jehoshua..."

Side note. ''burn off'' relative to 'fire' relative to 'altar' relative to S/W?

And/or: ''The prima material is as cheap as dirt and can be had everywhere, only nobody knows it...It has a thousand names. But without it, the work cannot begin. The task of the alchemist is like ''shooting an arrow through a thread {'eye of the needle'?} HUNG up in a cloud,'' as Spitteler says. This prima material is ''saturnine'' - it is the most despised and rejected thing, ''thrown out into the street,'' ''cast on the dung hill,'' ''found in filth.'' [Page 170 'Alchemical Studies'].

Side note: {something to be learnt?}: "Although the keys to the mysteries are given to the initiate of the Western Way, each must still find the way in darkness by the light  of personal intuition....The deceased 'gear' {'sarcophagus'?} was sometimes smashed to indicate that it was, henceforth, relegated to the Otherworld..." [Page 38 'The Western Way'].

Question. Any other reason to ''smash'' something. Recall the ''nose'' on the Sphinx {was it really due to Napoleon's sharp shooters?}  or the ''defacement'' of such ''gear'' that belonged to such individuals as Akhenaten? To name but one.


Continued: "...However, Paul never once mentioned Hell in any of his letters. The only possible exception in some Bible translations is where Paul is quoted as saying that Jehoshua triumphed over Hell in 1 Corinthians 15:55, but here, the Greeks word translates as ''the grave." This is the same word that is mistranslated in the Old Testament as ''Hell'' and was originally written as sheol." [Extract from the book ' The Synchronicity Key' by D. Wilcock].

Recall what '15' represents and/or the 'triple' of any number and/or the 'power' of same, i.e.,in the above example that would be 125...

Side note: 15th September 1940 ?


Herodium {Herodeion}. Three sarcophagus found. Two 'white' one 'red'. 'Red' one purposely smashed? Transcendent third not yet achieved? {indicative of}. "One decorated , the other UNdecorated - "the one decorated looked like ivy with flowers..." [ 'Herod's Lost Tomb' / Nat. Geographic]. Question. Lilies?

Continued: "In the famous judgement scene, called the Psychostasia, {i.e.,illustration of the chapter 125 of the Book of the Coming Forth into Day} - the deceased is brought forward, either by Maat or by Anubis, {i.e.,jackal / dog}. The scale is surmounted by Maat, justice: on one of its pans is the heart of the deceased, and Maat's feather on the other. The human passions must not weigh to heavily, nor must the appetites {expressed by the Ka} re-attract to strongly, or it may be that the female monster, the 'Devourer', would gobble up the deceased, who anxiously waits the judgement to be rendered by Thoth..." [Extract from the book 'Egyptian Mysteries']. Anything? Can you 'weigh up' all that information to 'see' something.

And/or: ''In Spell 125 of the Book of the Dead, the deceased declares that he has: 'Not trapped birds in the preserves of the gods; nor caught the fish of their marshlands.'' [Page 45 'Ancient Egypt Magazine' / Jan-Feb / 2023].


All in relation to: ''Classical authors agreed that Egyptian priests were forbidden to eat fish and, since the king was nominally High Priest of every cult, the prohibition extended to the Pharaoh himself.'' [Page 43].


Fishers of Man?

Side note: Eating to fast = ''gobble'' link to the sound turkeys make = Christmas/winter link to death/rebirth? ['The Chase'].

REFRESHER: "The jackal-headed vase was called Duamutef, and contained the stomach, and occasionally the large intestine...The real meaning of this name is shown by the way it is written on the sarcophagus of Amenophis II, d*wa*mut*f, in which the hieroglyph 'wa' represents a knot coming untied. 'Mut' {meaning both Mother and Vulture} symbolizes the function of decomposition which takes place in the stomach {'belly'?} as in a womb and makes possible the generation of a new life. This is also the function of the jackal, which converts putrefying matter into vital nourishment. This is the first stage of any genesis...'' ['The Opener of the Way']. Continued elsewhere. Try ''knot'' and/or ''dog'' {i.e.,jackal}.

Try Akhet and/or 'antechamber'.

SIDE NOTE: " its 'physical' form as a 'Lily', i.e.,"as bearer of symbolic meaning". Chapter two. Same book. Try ''lily''. As a means...?

'Mans Search for Meaning' / Viktor Frankl.

Refresher: A 'working' example {i.e.,something hinted at}: "He arrived at the Atelier. The sculpture received him cordially and asked him to come in...Jean Thomas looked around at the new decor. On the stiff curtains hanging from column to column were engravings of religious paintings - primitive paintings and those of the Renaissance, of Giotto, della Francesca, and Fra Angelico. There were Madonnas and angels. Before the Holy See, there was a beautifully illustrated Mass book on a pulpit. At the feet of the black Virgin was a spray of lilies, which contrasted with the ebony of the statue." ['Journey into the Light'].

''Book'' in relation to a 'method'. Try that one.

Sculptured by ''The favourite of the King''.

Fish hook? Fisher of man?

As is the intent of: "I write this book with a master plan in mind. I do not go blindly word by word, hoping that sooner or later a sentence will 'evolve'. The sculptor sees the finished statue in the UNcarved block." ['Serpent in the Sky' / J. West].

Sculptor is a small constellation bordered by Aquarius and Cetus to the north, Fornax to the east, Phoenix to the south, Grus to the southwest, and Piscis Austrinus to the west. The bright star Fomalhaut is nearby.

''Fomalhaut is the brightest star in the Southern Fish constellation'' [Wiki].

Side note: The 1924-26 excavation put flesh on the legend. A pedestal of a statue of Zoser was found. On it, alongside Zoser’s title of Neterikhet (body of the neter) , Imhotep is cited with his manifold titles: Chancellor of the King of Lower Egypt, the First after the King of Upper Egypt, Administrator of the Great Palace, Hereditary Lord, the High Priest of Heliopolis, Imhotep the Builder, the Sculptor, the Maker of Stone Vases.

An unbelievable feat of ancient architecture, The Wall of the Crow is 656 feet long, 32 feet high and 32 feet at the base. Standing near the Sphinx, this ancient wall was constructed in the 4th Dynasty of Egypt and the true purpose still remains unknown.

Continued: Pisces Austrinus originated with the Babylonian constellation simply known as the Fish (MUL.KU).[2][3] Professor of astronomy Bradley Schaefer has proposed that ancient observers must have been able to see as far south as Mu Piscis Austrini to define a pattern that looked like a fish.[4] Along with the eagle Aquila the crow Corvus and water snake Hydra, Piscis Austrinus was introduced to the Ancient Greeks around 500 BCE; the constellations marked the summer and winter solstices, respectively.

And/or: ''Machina Electrica (Latin for electricity generator) was a constellation created by Johann Bode in 1800. He created it from faint stars between Fornax and Sculptor, to the south of Cetus. It represented an electrostatic generator. The constellation was somewhat popular during the 19th century and had appeared in a number of star charts, but was eventually rendered obsolete when the International Astronomical Union standardized constellation boundaries in 1930 and is now no longer in use.'' [Wiki].

A working example: ''Since it was first displayed in 1883, two decades after it was first discovered, the 'nine' foot tall marble statue of Winged Victory Nike has awed visitors to the Louvre....It was placed by the sculptor above the theater in the Sanctuary of the Great Gods on Samothrace {N/E}....where one can see 'right down through the HEART of the sanctuary - and then out to sea'....ancient contexts of which are obscure. Nike is depicted alighting on a warships prow that served as the sculpture's base {'struggle' link}. The prow being made of blocks of Lartian marble, a blue-grey stone {battering ram} with pink and white veins - quarried from the coast off the Island of Rhodes {i.e., S/E Greece}.....Lions heads {with hair locks} in the form of fountains and lions manes also found.''

Question. Did those ''hair locks'' cover the middle of the forehead?

Apollo: Curl or knot?

''He has outlived that rage of early youth i.e., from dawn to noon {'zenith'}. He is no longer impulsive, but immutable Will...breath from the sculptured stone.'' [Page 54 'Hathor Rising' / A. Roberts].

Biting ones tongue?

''Fomalhaut, aka Alpha Piscis Austrinus, is sometimes called the Loneliest Star. That’s because it’s the only bright star in a wide stretch of sky. From the Northern Hemisphere, Fomalhaut arcs in solitary splendour across the southern sky in autumn. Some call it the Autumn Star. From the Southern Hemisphere, you’ll look higher up to see Fomalhaut in your season of spring. In 2021, Fomalhaut isn’t so solitary. Two brighter planets, Jupiter and Saturn, appear near it in the sky. Fomalhaut will be the one that’s twinkling......Fomalhaut is the 18th brightest star in the night sky. It’s part of the faint constellation Piscis Austrinus, the Southern Fish. In a dark sky, you’ll see a half-circle of faint stars of which bright Fomalhaut is a part. This star pattern marks the open mouth of the Southern Fish.'' [].

Twingle, twingle little star.....

Question. What is the common factor.

Question 2. What does it REPRESENT?

"The joy of good conscious is the accord between the moral rhythms of the 'lower' and 'higher' self. The beatitude [Matthew v,8] promising those who have a pure heart that they will 'see' god - signifies the accordance of their basic rhythm with the 'divine' rhythm. Joy is therefore the state of harmony of the inner/outer rhythms - of rhythm below with that of above..." [Extract from the book by Tomberg].

Try ''pure'' to 'see' it in the alchemy 'sense of the word'.

Any lions manes?

"They thought in terms of spiritual essences or ideals, and 'spirits' are hard to pin down..." ['The Chemistry of Alchemy'].

As one example: "To understand Sendivogius's method for isolating saltpeter, we must first understand what is meant by ''salt''. The term salt is used to describe a host of chemical compounds that resemble and behave like regular table salt, which is sodium Chloride, NaCI. A salt is usually white {'pure' link} and crystalline, although it can be different colours such as our friend copper{II} sulfate, which is blue. Salts are often soluble in water, but some salts are more soluble than others. In 'Discourse of Fire and Salt' - Blaisede Vigenere {1523-1596} stated that ''[saltpeter] is made of - fire and salt - the first because it burns, and the second because it dissolves in water." [Same book]. All as a means...?

''Salzburg in Austria translates as salt fortress - Origins for The Sound of Music.''

Qena = 'New City''.

''Salzburg is an Austrian city on the border of Germany, with views of the Eastern Alps. The city is divided by the Salzach River, with medieval and baroque buildings of the pedestrian Altstadt (Old City) on its left bank, facing the 19th-century Neustadt (New City) on its right. The Altstadt birthplace of famed composer Mozart is preserved as a museum displaying his childhood instruments.''

"The 'good life' is a process. The good life is a process, not a state of being. It is a direction, not a destination. The good life constitutes a direction selected by the total organism, when there is psychological freedom to move in ANY direction." [Taken from Part three, 'on matters of existence' from the book, 'Striking Thoughts' { Bruce Lee's Wisdom for Daily Living} by J. Little.

Analogy of same?..."When Dr Ian Jones asked me how i dealt with the visions without the aid of medication, i replied: ' I just fire bullets of logic at them as they come zooming towards me and give them no credence; then i flick them away as if they are annoying, buzzing mosquito's." [Extract from the book by Q. S. Lam].

"I tried to ask him why he liked me, he couldn't give me an answer and then he said, ''Go away Fred, go and fly away like a helicopter." My son paused before continuing, ''Fred is in the forest with his Mummy. His Mummy is good but Fred is bad and he has a baby in his tummy - a baby caterpillar." I told him that Fred had planted a worm in my head, to which my son replied, ''Yes, Fred has planted hundreds of caterpillars in my head, too...We need to lock him up in a cupboard with a key and make him very small. Look, this is how small we have to make him,'' he said making a tiny triangle with his hand. ''Go and make caterpillars on the sun Fred and not in my head or Mummies head." My son doesn't appear to be afraid of Fred. He's even suggested that we eat Fred in one of my tofu noodle soups. I said i would prefer to eat him on toast with lots of butter, but that actually it would be better not to eat Fred at all because he probably wouldn't taste very nice. Is talking about Fred the right approach? Is it even age appropriate? I don't know, but what is the alternative - to buckle under the strain of Fred's rants? I have tried to explain very complicated mental health issues in an imaginative, simple and honest way that my son will understand. He has even suggested hitting Fred in the face with his neon green ball until he's dead. I told him that was not the way and that maybe we had to make Fred our friend, since i don't think he had many. My son looked at me and i could tell he almost felt sorry for Fred. Could i keep him at bay through these stories? Just about. If i continued like this, Fred might just put down his sticks, and stop pummelling the walls of my mind." The author ,i.e.,Q. S. Lam, then writes a poem entitled...'Is There Light'...

A working example: ''Located on the western base of the Sacramento Mountains in New Mexico, the Three Rivers Petroglyphs site is one of the largest rock art sites in the Southwest. Incidently, this site is located at the same latitude as both Phoenix and the geoglyphs: 33 degrees. The park contains over 20,000 petroglyphs carved atop a ridge by the Mogollon culture between 900 and 1400AD. One of the geometric designs located there is a Maltese cross within a circle surrounded by a ring of seventeen dots.  The Hopi are also familiar with this cross, which is represented by two hair discs laid perpendicular to each other. Also known as 'nogla' or ''butterfly whorls'' these items are traditionally worn by maidens.'' [Page 276/7 'The Orion Zone: Ancient Star Cities of the American S/W' / Gary David].

Refresher: "It seems unlikely that anyone in our day would be able to explain the deeper meaning of 17, and yet this number was quite important in the ancient Near East. The local god of Urartu, the area around Mount Ararat, received a seventeen fold 'sacrifice' {body parts?}, and perhaps 17 spread out from there into adjacent countries. In the Bible it is connected to the flood, which began on the seventeenth day of the 2nd month and lasted till the seventeenth day of the 7th month. At that point, Noah had reached Mount Ararat...One has speculated that 17 is connected to the ark, or with floating on waters {'floating islands'?} - in this connection one may think of Odysseus, who floated on a raft for seventeen days after leaving Calypso. In Egypt, on the 17th day of a month, Osiris is cast into the river in Typhon's coffin. There is also the Greek tradition cut timber for boats on the 17th day of the month.

The probosis of the butterfly? Try ''honey''.

And/or: "From ancient times the butterfly, psyche, has signified not only the mystery of physical metamorphoses, but also the loveliest transmutations of the soul...All over the world the gossamer beauty of the butterfly, its winged nature and breathtaking release from a pupal cocoon have symbolized the soul reborn out of chrysalis like containment...Like an alchemical 'vas', the chrysalis is both the ''golden'' [ chryseos] vessel of transformation and the object gives no outward sign of the concealed unfolding within as the old forms, dissolve and the embryonic tissue is restructured. The butterfly is one of our most poetic images of psyche's self renewal beyond even traumatic endings...The Greek myth of Eros and Psyche tells the story of passion, doubt and separation between the soul and her beloved and the tortuous process that precedes there reunion. This drama is enacted in ourselves in countless ways, as libido pursues the objects of psyche's desire, ways that can be poignantly self-destructive as well as redolent of promise."

'Swamplands of the Soul: New Life in Dismal Places' by J. Hollis.

"There is a thought, a recurrent fantasy perhaps, that the purpose of life is to achieve happiness. After all, even the Constitution of the United States promises ''life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness." Who does not long to arrive, some distant day at that sunlit meadow where, untroubled, we may rest easy, abide awhile and be happy? But nature or fate, or the gods, has another thought which keeps interrupting this fantasy. The split, the discrepancy between what we long for and what we suffer as limitation, has haunted the Western imagination...


...The litany arising from the gap between hope and experience is endless. Whether to suffer it stoically, react heroically or whine about one's condition seems onerous yet unavoidable choice. But Jungian psychology, and the disciplined practice of personal growth it promotes, offers another perspective based on the assumption that the goal of life is not happiness but meaning....

....We may well experience moments of happiness, but they are ephemeral and can neither be willed into being nor perpetuated by hope. Rather, Jungian psychology, as well as much of the rich religious and mythological tradition from which it draws many of its insights, avers that it is the swamplands of the soul, the savannas of suffering, that provide the context for the stimulation and the attainment of meaning. As far back as 2500 years ago, Aeschylus observed that the gods have ordained a solemn degree, that through suffering we come to wisdom. Without the suffering, which seems the epiphenomenal requisite for psychological and spiritual maturation, one would remain unconscious, infantile and dependent...

"The statues of Amenhotep III {Memnon} on the Western bank of the Nile {facing east}: 'sitting, as they have for ages, in grand and mournful solemnity'. Believed to be the Pharaoh of Exodus {1500BC}: 'The other statue was thought to be his brother' {his 'weird'?}. The statues and their thrones, BUT NOT their pedestals {'thirteen' feet in height}, were originally hewn out of a single stone."   AND/OR: "When all the gods, men, and animals were invited by the divine messenger, Hermes, to attend the wedding of Zeus and Hera, the nymph Chelone alone remained at home, to shew her disregard of the solemnity. But Hermes then descended from Olympus, threw Chelone's house, which stood on the bank of a river, together with the nymph, into the water, and transformed her into a lazy tortoise, who had henceforth to carry her house on her back." [Page 47 'Egypt and Nubia' / D. Roberts, W. Brockedon and G. Croly]. 'Melancholy' to enlarge.

...An old saying has it that religion is for those who are afraid of going to hell; spirituality is for those who have been there...It is in the swamplands where soul is fashioned and forged, where we encounter not only the gravitas of life, but its purpose, its dignity and its deepest meaning...Psychology was the last of the so-called social sciences to evolve, as Jung noted, because its raison d'etre was theretofore sustained by the great myths and myth-making institutions. Psyche is the Greek word for ''soul'' and etymologically had twin roots: one the butterfly whose mysterious, beautiful, but elusive permutations metaphorically dramatize our experience of soul; and the other, from the verb ''to breath,'' is an analogue of that invisible wind which enters at birth and departs at death. How ironic, then, that modern psychology so often addresses only the behaviours which can be observed and converted to statistical models, or cognitions which can be reprogrammed, or biochemical anomalies which may be medicated. While all of these treatment modalities are significant and helpful, they seldom address the most profound need of the modern; namely, to render one's journey meaningful."

But he extolled the superiority of mental therapy, and often repeated: ''Wisdom is the greatest cleanser."... He numbered many doctors among his disciples.

''I'M just glad he got his flowers while he was alive.'' {BBC NEWS/21.2.22}. R.I.P.

Side note: Besides their resemblance to a turtle’s head, Chelone flowers have a unique botanical feature — a sterile stamen in addition to four fertile ones.  The sterile stamen is useful in helping to identify the various Chelone species. For example, it is green in C. glabra, white in C. obliqua, and rose-tipped in C. lyonii.....

Chelone lyonii is a native perennial wildflower that originally was found in Virginia to Alabama but has been introduced to the Northeast. Loving disturbed sites or along the margins of wetlands, lakes, or rivers, Chelone lyonii prefers moist rich soil sites and benefits from good composted leaf mulch in the garden. It grows in full sun to part shade but needs adequate moisture for full sun situations. It has some susceptibility to mildew if air circulation in the site is low and soil moisture conditions are stressful.

Introduced to the trade by North Creek Nurseries, it was selected for its clean foliage, great growth habit, and deep pink flower coloring. It is wonderful in a rain garden, naturalized moist site planting, perennial border, or as a container plant. Chelone is well-noted for being prime diet fodder for multiple species of Lepidoptera larvae while also being resistant to deer and other mammals due to its bitter foliage."

REFRESHER: "If one has the power to endure the way of rebuke with great passion, and if his mind can control its fantasies, then he can ride {his mind} like a horse. He can control it as he desires, spurring it on to go forward, or reigning it to stop where he pleases. At all times his imagination remains subject to his will, not straying from its authority....This is truly a mighty 'warrior'...He is like Uriel, who constantly gazes at 'the light of god', delighted in gods Mysteries."

"Initiates inside and outside the Church create great works of art and architecture to help condition humanity for its future 'evolution.' They also carry enough clues for those who are so minded as to be able to decode them." [Same chapter, same book i.e.,J. Black].

A more {practical?} analogy..."From Hermopolis, city of Hermes {Thoth}, master of Writing, Numbers, Measurement and Time, comes the description of the Nun, the primordial environment, picturing 'its' qualities and characteristics: 'He {the Demiurge} created the 'eight'. He formed its body as that of a sacred child who issues forth from a lotus in the middle of the Nun.' The primordial Eight, as envisaged at Hermopolis {the Ogdoad}, together form, as the text indicates, a single entity. The Nun is envisaged as a swampy mire, a seething primal cradle in which live four couples of serpents and frogs...[Extract from the book 'Egyptian Mysteries' by L. Lamy].

Side note: "The ogdoad is the first cube. It is called 'safety' and 'foundation'. The seed of the ogdoad is the first even number. It is the sum of the monad, triad and tetrad. The sequence from the monad to it adds up to thirtysix, which is the time within which they say: 'seventh month child-ren are formed'....." [Page 188 'Alexandria'. Vol 3. D. Fideler].


'Red' pyramid - Egypt. 'THIRD' one built. First 'true' pyramid. Same gradient {learning curve?} as the lessor one {slower?} on the 'Bent' pyramid. Step by step increments? Question. Dont we all start off {in haste?} 'quickly' before finding a more suitable rhythm? Representation of. Side note: Recall Herod's red sarcophagus. Try ''fire'' i.e.,what it implies in the overall 'scheme of things'. Understanding that defines the concept of the Benben stone - the same one that the author of 'Imhotep the African' attempts to explain, i.e., the 'tip' of a PYR-ramid. Try 'tip' / 'Pyr' / 'Atum' / 'mound' i.e.,balance between wet/dry etc. to 'see' what that author cannot. To 'see' into that ancient mindset.

Question. Can you by now put those keys together to define something while recalling what symbol represents that stage of {a learning process?} that results in ''wisdom'' - and WHY?

N.B. Hermes = Transition {stretching?} ones boundaries. Thoth = God of balance/equilibrium. Both attributes {aspects} intermix to define an end result, {mechanics of}. The process {qualities?} needed to achieve that end. Representational of. Question. Agree or disagree?

'Line of sight'?

A work in progress {the very first one?}: "When seen in the evening sky, Mercury is represented by Hermes, the swift messenger of the gods and the guardian of travellers. It is in the latter role that he has his moment of prominence in Book 24 of the Iliad. Hector has been killed...Traditionally, Hermes is also a thief and trickster - attributes recalled by Homer when the god is called upon in vain to steal Hector's body from Achilles so that it can be returned to his father, King Priam...The god can only take him part of the way...The sequence is: Priam leaves Ursa Major, and is taken across the zodiac by Hermes {Mercury} before meeting Achilles in Canis Major. After paying a ransom for Hectors body, Priam is urged to return home by Hermes while it is still 'dark'.

Any thumbs? Water symbol in the form of a 'dress'?

The first hurdle Priam meets on his outward journey is the zodiac, where Hermes is instructed by Zeus, 'It is you who are most suited to escort men on their way - go and so conduct Priam to the ships of the Greeks'. As a planet, Hermes cannot move outside the boundaries of the zodiac, and after crossing the zodiacal band {'girdle'?} he takes his leave of Priam when he says: 'I will now leave you, and will not enter into the presence of Achilles'. Although it would not be possible to see Mercury both in the evening and the morning in the course of one night, Homer seems to reinforce the position of the planet in the zodiac when Priam, returning home, is once again met by Hermes and is escorted to the topmost boundary of the zodiac, from where Priam has to continue his journey without the gods help." ['Homer's Secret Iliad'].

What about the female aspect? 'AFAR'?

"Ancient Greek philosophers among them Heron of Alexandria, who studied with Egypt's priests in the 2nd century, suggested that the soul possessed an innate universal knowledge that exterior objects awakened through the senses. This concept resembles Jung's idea of a collective unconscious that is accessed through sensory experience and that speaks primary through the emotions. The ancient Greek root word for 'symbol' meant ''something that is thrown across,'' like a bridge between sacred and profane worlds, or between inner and outer realities. Symbols provides 'nets' of meaning [omphalos + '153' link?]. The mind synthesizes impressions gleaned from an image as the warp threads and connects them by emotional responses as the weft threads.

"Nature is a net of correspondence to be deciphered and integrated into a holistic {whole?} worldview." [extract from the book 'The Magister'. Parenthesis, this readers].

N.B. The root of the word ''holy'' = whole i.e.,a reunion of the ''whole?''

... ''eternal and absolute moment,'' what T. S. Eliot defines as a 'timeless moment' and others as a eureka moment. Question. What symbol is used to define that 'action of the mind,' and why? Question two. Why should it be necessary to explain it at all?

"The no-mans land between Physics and the psychology of the Unconscious [is] the most fascinating yet the darkest hunting ground of our times." Carl Jung.

Refresher: King Aha - the very first of Egypt. Predates all others. Coincidence or a meaningful one?

Uuroboros: Chains below. Tree ties above. Inner/outer. 'Orange'?

Side note: King Ka and THE ''Scorpion King'' and Narmer all identified around same time. One relates more to Abydos the other Thebes/Karnac. One before that bend in a river the other after it. Two of those names relate to ONE individual, i.e., nebty and/or Horus name. In other words Someone's NEW NAME.

Sense of smell no longer needed? How about intuition?

Step Pyramid/Meidum/Bent Pyramid/Red Pyramid/ Giza {three] Pyramids. Eighth = Djedefre's, i, e., N/W of ALL those monuments - the HIGHEST spot in Egypt.


Question. Where would that second beginning start {of a 'higher' level}?

Orion? i.e., something ''under his belt''?

Upside down?

Question 2. Of those 'three' which was known as the most benign?

"Psychology and esotericism set out to explore the darkness outside of our knowledge, whether it be dwelling in the 'unconscious' or the 'astral', the mundus imaginalis, or the dark side of the Tree of Life." [Extract from the book 'The Magister']. Define ''astral'' before those first impressions define something else. Link that answer up to that universal framework.


"Let him who seeks, continue seeking until he finds. When he finds he will become troubled. When he becomes troubled he will be astonished, and he will rule over all." [ The 'Nazarene' from, The Gospel of Thomas].

"...the 'nails' of objectivity - which give conscience to thought."

The symbol of which is the Crown of Thorns, i.e.,"The 'thorns' of the crown center function as the 'nails' of objectivity..." [Taken from 'letter 5' from within the book by Tomberg].

Before those first impressions take hold; remember that Christ himself also understood the same subject by way of - the same method?


"In his right hand he held seven stars, and from his mouth came a sharp, two-edged sword, and his face was like the sun shining with full force. When i saw him, i fell at his feet as though dead. But he placed his right hand on me, saying: 'Do not be afraid, i am the first and last, and the living one. I was dead, and see, i am alive for ever and ever; and i have the keys of Death and of Hades..." [Rev. 1:16-18. Taken from the book 'Wisdom of the 4th Way'].

Recall what 'Revelation' implies {elsewhere} - in relation to such {archetypes?} as say - Hades [Part 1].



Question. Full circle?

"What is a symbol anyway? In effect, it is the good old ''outward sign of an inward grace,'' or a practical link between objective and subjective existence. It is a body containing a soul, matter holding a meaning, a focus of force, a condenser of consciousness, or a ''thought tank." Anything and everything can be a symbol. Whatsoever connects consciousness, and life together from one level to another, or even to different points on the same level is a symbol. Figures, letters, words and ideographs are very good examples of symbols, since these join thinking with living." [ Chapter 3, of the book by William Gray]. Try ''fertiliz{s}ation'' or ''crystalliz{s}ation''.

Understanding that framework in relation to the ''divine bit'' gives a deeper meaning to those words [ intent of] - highlighted.

venus'The Birth of Venus' by Botticelli. 'The Primavera' [ also known as ''Allegory of Spring''], painted by same, of which has been said....."One of the most popular paintings in Western art"..........."One of the most written about, and controversial paintings in the world." [ Wikipedia ].

To understand their true meaning, define those KEYS. As an example... what can sometimes be found within a Scallop shell. Put that answer in the search box.


Egyptian Nebu symbol meaning 'gold'.

"The word ' Scallop ' can bring several images to mind: perhaps first as a decorative motif used on the edge of draperies or clothing or jewellery. The shell of the Great Scallop [Pecten maximus. Latin for 'comb'], was a symbol used by artists throughout the centuries. Greek temples and Roman vases were adorned with shell motifs. A famous example from mediaeval times is the Triton Fountain in Rome. The marble fountain, designed by Bernini in 1642, shows Triton, son of the sea god Poseidon, perched on a large, open scallop shell, supported by two dolphins."...........

A working example: "At Udal {Island on West Orkneys} the largest extensive collection found of Viking combs in the UK: "Interpretation, still a work in progress....Could be a comb making industry." + Bone needles {made from bird bones}: "Perhaps to fasten his cloak or keep his hair in place." ['Digging For Britain' / S2 EP2].



Stag and deer.

And/or: “We know from Norse sagas that hair had a great significance for Vikings as a mark of distinctiveness. They took a great deal of care with their grooming and often carried combs with their swords and knives on their belts. They frequently even took combs to the grave. It is an investigation relying as much on molecular analysis of bone material, work pioneered by Professor Matthew Collins at the University’s BioArCh laboratory, as on traditional archaeological techniques. Dr Ashby's fascination with combs was sparked when, as a Masters student at York, he became involved in a debate about when the Vikings first arrived in Orkney.


Research in the 1990s suggested combs of pre-Viking style were made from reindeer antler, which could only have come from Norway, indicating that contact with Scandinavia must have begun earlier than thought. But by looking at the way combs are manufactured, where they are found and what raw materials they use, we can also reveal many other fascinating details about Norse society and how international links developed. Dr Ashby, together with colleagues from Aarhus University, recently helped establish that Vikings from the arctic north were trading with a western Danish outpost called Ribe by 725. That is seven decades before they appeared in Britain. Combs and associated manufacturing waste from early archaeological deposits in the town's old marketplace were discovered to be made from reindeer antler. As with Orkney, this raw material is not local so it was probably brought from Norway by northern travellers: perhaps the first Vikings."

The taiga or boreal forest has been called the world's largest land biome.[3] In North America, it covers most of inland Canada, Alaska, and parts of the northern contiguous United States.[4] In Eurasia, it covers most of Sweden, Finland, much of Russia from Karelia in the west to the Pacific Ocean (including much of Siberia), much of Norway and Estonia, some of the Scottish Highlands,[citation needed] some lowland/coastal areas of Iceland, and areas of northern Kazakhstan, northern Mongolia, and northern Japan (on the island of Hokkaidō).

And/or: "Perhaps no one has ever been as excited to see a comb as Danish archaeologist Søren Sindbæk. He and a team of archaeologists from Aarhus University recently unearthed one at a historic Viking town called Ribe in Denmark. Even more exciting, he says, the word "comb" is inscribed on one side while what amounts to the version of "to comb" is on the other. For anyone who's not a career archaeologist or Viking history enthusiast, the find may seem trivial, but it could potentially tell historians about the birth of a Viking alphabet and, as a result, how the historic Viking Age rose to prominence. To understand why the comb is important, you have to rewind to the late 8th century, a critical moment in time for the Vikings. It was the dawn of the Viking Age, which began just before 800 C.E., and language in the region had undergone hundreds of years of evolution.

Then, suddenly, the alphabet changed. The runes, or letters, used by the group's predecessors became more uniform and modern to match the evolved way of speaking. Tall and vertical, the new lines were easy to carve into wood or stone, says Sindbæk. "We don't know why or when that happened," he says of the new alphabet being used. "It doesn't seem to be gradual."  Meaning the new alphabet was likely created by one person or one institution and then disseminated. But why, when, and by whom? Archaeologists aren't sure."

Sutton Hoo purse clasp: Wolfs / eagles and ducks.

Side note: I sent them a picture of the fossil, and the elders came up with two suggestions, Siksagiaq and Tiktaalik. We went with Tiktaalik for its relative ease of pronunciation for the non-Inuktitut-speaking tongue and because of its meaning in Inuktitut: “large freshwater fish.” .....Tiktaalik was the lead story in a number of newspapers the day after the find was announced in April 2006, including above-thefold headlines in such places as The New York Times....In the midst of the press hubbub, my son’s preschool teacher asked me to bring in the fossil and describe it. I dutifully brought a cast of Tiktaalik into Nathaniel’s class, bracing myself for the chaos that would ensue. The twenty four and five-year-olds were surprisingly well behaved as I described how we had worked in the Arctic to find the fossil and showed them the animal’s sharp teeth. Then I asked what they thought it was. Hands shot up. The first child said it was a crocodile or an alligator. When queried why, he said that like a crocodile or lizard it has a flat head with eyes on top. Big teeth, too. Other children started to voice their dissent. Choosing the raised hand of one of these kids, I heard: No, no, it isn’t a crocodile, it is a fish, because it has scales and fins. Yet another child shouted, “Maybe it is both.” Tiktaalik' s message is so straightforward even preschoolers can see it. ['Your Inner Fish' / N. Shubin].

Flat head?

As well as being a doctor and inventor, he was also an active poet, geologist and botanist. Inventor of the 'differential steering' which Ford and the car industry used right up to the 1940's. A good family man with eighteen kids. Died in 1802. Charles Darwin born in Shrewsbury seven years later. Charles Darwin did a lot of his fossil hunting in the Shrewsbury area which later led to his formulation on ideas about evolution.

Later on, Sir Francis Darwin, one of his sons, was made a Mason in Tyrian Lodge, No. 253, at Derby, in 1807 or 1808. His son Reginald was made a Mason in Tyrian Lodge in 1804. Charles Darwin's name does not appear on the rolls of the Lodge but it is very possible that he, like Francis, was a Mason, as he held many Masonic beliefs such as Deism throughout his life.''

Mind set?

Tyrian purple (Ancient Greekπορφύρα porphúraLatinpurpura), also known as royal purpleimperial purple, or imperial dye, is a reddish-purple natural dye. The name Tyrian refers to Tyre, Lebanon, once Phoenicia. It is secreted by several species of predatory sea snails in the family Muricidae, rock snails originally known by the name Murex (Bolinus brandarisHexaplex trunculus and Stramonita haemastoma). In ancient times, extracting this dye involved tens of thousands of snails and substantial labour, and as a result, the dye was highly valued. The colored compound is 6,6'-dibromoindigo.

Synchronistic example [if only for this reader]...From a poem by Q. S. Lam entitled: 'A small Cloud'..."A small cloud has been hanging over her for as long as she can remember. Today the tears fell, like slender rivers; the mask slipping off and fell to the floor. There she sat in the middle of the ocean, the dolphins were singing and she didn't sing back. She threw small daggers at them. A little dolphin winked and squeaked. Opening her eyes, she wasn't so alone anymore - perched on a small rock, she stared out at the ocean - kicked down the door of her mind - to take a gentle stroll. What did she see? More closed doors, not a shaving of light, only a small cloud floating stubbornly, and a broken plate - ''Chuck it away'', a distant voice whispered. The landscape on the plate; painted with such care faded now - just an outline: ''Time to paint a new picture'', the voice whispered again: And step into a new landscape with fresh things to discover..."

That ''new picture'' could be : "In the fantasy we have taken, it is true that this animus figure cut the woman off from life, behaving in a most orthodox and exemplary manner, so that the natural feminine was quite suffocated, and because everything he told her was in fact material that is stressed again and again in the Logos world, she had no way of escape but through what seemed an unjust sickness. To come again to the feminine realm means to face the animus from a NEW STANDPOINT. St. Augustine said that woman has no soul for she is soul. If a woman has the courage to leave the logos world and seek and give value to the feminine truth, the animus is her guide and friend. Whole in herself, her sons are free, and she passes to them the mystery of the soul that they, too, may face life." ['The Old Wise Woman: A Study of Active Imagination' / R. Weaver]. Hence...

A ''trickster'' type exercise? To get the cognitive faculty in 'motion'? {Static or dynamic}?

"Quintessential saviors of the shipwrecked and drowning, dolphins are the nimble ''sea people'' {Bacchylides of Ceos} who can be relied upon to buoy us up and carry us back to shore, protect us from marine marauders, keep us company in our lone passages through treacherous channels and, if we're lucky, escort our ships out of trouble before they founder in the first place. The reasons for wild dolphins' long history of beneficence towards us is a mystery, but their role as our rescuers from imminent submergence is attested in outer reality as well as in our dreams. There is something suggestive in the similarity of the Greek words for dolphin {delphis} and for womb or uterus {delphys}. Just as the goddess Aphrodite is born from the surf and is often shown on the back of a dolphin, the streamlined creatures who are so conspicuously attuned with their marine world are emissaries of the womb of the ocean, where all life arose, and to which the whales, rare among mammals, returned to live after having spent some evolutionary time as earth dwellers...Dolphins are sometimes 'trickster' type - as they don't mind playing jokes on..."

N.B. Scratch of lion in relation to a cat = more 'intent'. Question. Intent of what? Question 2. Do the 'scratchings' relate to the inner or outer of the shell? What does that imply? If only in relation to a subject.

'Nine' life's?

And/or: '' Cats always land on their feet.''

On the Shoulders of giants?

''The cat righting reflex is a cat's innate ability to orient itself as it falls in order to land on its feet. The righting reflex begins to appear at 3–4 weeks of age, and is perfected at 6–9 weeks. Cats are able to do this because they have an unusually flexible backbone and no functional clavicle (collarbone).'' [Wiki].

''Felinity: (usually uncountable, plural felinities) (uncountable) The state of being feline. (countable) Any feline characteristic. She walked with grace and felinity. (humorous) catkind, all cats collectively.''

"Clavicula: This term translates to both “little key” and “collarbone.” It is derived from the Latin word clavis, which means “key.” Interestingly, the collarbone is called the clavicle because its long, slender shape with a slightly bent lateral end resembles a key. Additionally, the bone rotates along its axis like a key when the shoulder is abducted."

''Inspiration'' to enlarge.

A working example: ''In a more cosmological vein, energy is the expression of spirit opposing form....As the shadow trapped within the person struggles towards consciousness, as the soul trapped within the mortal shell animates the living body, so in a relationship, the individual struggles against the bond of 'marriage'. Energy is the measurable expression of the revolt of spirit against its imprisonment in matter. How that energy manifests, whether constructively or destructively, depends upon how well the opposites within the self have been resolved.'' [Page 88 'Dreams of Isis' / N. Ellis].

Male or female?

Side note: {something hinted at}: "The constellation Felis the Cat - a word which Latin lexicographers now write Faelis, was formed by La Lande {1805}....Its inventor said of it: 'I am very fond of cats. I will let this figure scratch on the chart. The starry sky has worried me quite enough in my life {the study of it?} - so that now I can have my joke with it.'...It has long been discontinued in catalogues and charts.

Initiation into a 'mystery club' and/or therefore mind set?

A side step: "In Latin a pearl was 'unio', because, as Pliny writes, it is 'the unique gem', or because pearls are only found singly...Oysters open and shut, like doors [folding doors in English were once called 'bivalves'], and the open shell of an oyster looks like the number 8." [Quote from the Lexicon chapter to the book ' The Book of Babel: Words and the Way We See Things' by N.Lewis].

Something hinted at: ''Profound progress in thinking will not come about by the demonstration of a new geometric theorem. In what way is evolution assisted by showing the relationships of the Golden section to the pentagon and that into a hexagon, as well as all the logical sequences of the Platonic solids - i know these things - as such they only represent mental satisfaction. It is more important for me to discover, in the functions of Phi, of Pi, and of the pentagon, the function that compels them to be what they are. It is more important to know why, through the spring equinox, the male mollusk becomes female..." [ Page 60 'The Egyptian Miracle'].

A 'creative' act?

"When we look into George O'Keeffe's slightly open clamshell we see the chaste beauty of the primordial shell of existence, a reminder of the sea's salty, elemental first fruits of life. Or again, the slightly open shell imparts subtle, feeling-toned qualities: the receptive, intimate, sensual and shy. It speaks of the creative and gestative, the introverted containment that fosters the essence of a life...Their rough round shells, invite our projections of prying open the world with our consciousness - ''the world is my oyster'' - extracting its treasures, assimilating its good, The shell opening of itself evokes the wonders of revelation and incarnation. And the closing of the shell: hidden process, reticence, and isolation; ''clamming up,'' a drawing of boundaries; a gathering in; being ''secret, and self contained, and solitary as an oyster''..."

It is said that Thoth is the master {lord?} of the 'secret water' {sweet?}...Mercury was thought to be the intermediary of the gods, the great voyager, who establishes a constant relationship between the Principle Functions and their earthly manifestations {i.e., as one example - Nova Scotia?}..."

Its shape resembles the stone pyramids of Giza...It recalled the primordial stone that arose from the watery abyss at ''the first time'' of creation. Its apex brushes the BELLY of sky, a beautiful goddess, the mother whom the ancients called Nut. In 'death' she brought him to her bosom, made him an ''indestructible star within her body''. So say the ancient Pyramid Texts, 'His Body to earth, his soul to sky'...'' [Page 138 'Dreams of Isis'].

Seat of Conscience?

Something extra - in the abstract sense of the word: ''The making of a thing whether with divine {that universal 'bit'} or human hands, involves the manipulation of a kind of genetic code that weaves itself among 'three' planes. The upper causal plane emanates from ''pure undifferentiated'' being, and the lower physical plane manifests form. Above, lies pure being; below, matter. Between the two is a formless intermediate plane that crackles with bodies of electric force. Filled with love, anger, fear and desire, its energies build the aufu and its subsequent incarnations in the way that sand, as an irritant, acts to build the oxysters future pearl. These spiritual bodies are not perceptible; rather, they are bodies of pure thought. These energetic forces of desire, concentration and affirmation are ruled by the sekhem {the power of the will}, the ren {the power of the name}, and the ab {the heart, or seat of conscience}. [Page 176 'Dreams of Isis'].

''St. Elmo's fire — also called Witchfire or Witch's Fire[1] — is a weather phenomenon in which luminous plasma is created by a corona discharge from a rod-like object such as a mast, spire, chimney, or animal horn[2] in an atmospheric electric field. It has also been observed on the leading edges of airplanes, as in the case of British Airways Flight 009. The intensity of the effect, a blue or violet glow around the object, often accompanied by a hissing or buzzing sound, is proportional to the strength of the electric field and therefore noticeable primarily during thunderstorms or volcanic eruptions.

St. Elmo's fire is named after St. Erasmus of Formia (also known as St. Elmo), the patron saint of sailors. The phenomenon, which can warn of an imminent lightning strike,[3] was regarded by sailors with awe and sometimes considered to be a good omen.''

Straight lines and curves. 90/180?

''Erasmus of Formia, also known as Saint Elmo (died c. 303), was a Christian saint and martyr. He is venerated as the patron saint of sailors and abdominal pain. Erasmus or Elmo is also one of the Fourteen Holy Helpers, saintly figures of Christian tradition who are venerated especially as intercessors.... in the Golden Legend credited him as a bishop at Formia over all the Italian Campania, as a hermit on Mount Lebanon, and a martyr in the Diocletianic Persecution. There appears to be no historical basis for his passio.''

Side note: 'Sweet water' = Living water? {Old/New Testament}. That ''living water'' represented with Jacobs Well. Found within the area that was first arrived at - OUT of Exodus. From 'fire' i.e., burnt desert to its remedy ''water''. A healing process. Represented with the Samaritan woman. ['Day 18: Give Me This Water. Jacobs Well. Samaria' / Kathleen Nichols/Magdala].

'Handle' on the moment?

From a different perspective: "To use the yang of water, you use the light of fire to illumine and absorb it. This shows that the 'sun and the moon' are originally ONE thing......

The darkness of the sun {Amun?} is the vitality of the true moon {Amun-Ra?}; the 'moon cavern' is not on the moon but on the sun {Denderah}. That is why it is called the 'moon cavern', for otherwise it would be enough just to say the 'moon'. The white of the moon is the light of the true sun {Karnak}. The sunlight being on the moon is what is called the 'root of heaven'. Otherwise it would be enough to just to say 'heaven'. When the sun and moon are separated, they are but half; only when they come together do they form a whole." [Page 48 'The Secret of the Golden Flower' / T. Cleary. Brackets/Italics- this readers].

The many species of Spondylus vary considerably in appearance. They are grouped in the same superfamily as the scallops.....They are not closely related to true oysters (family Ostreidae); however, they do share some habits such as cementing themselves to rocks rather than attaching themselves by a byssus. The two halves of their shells are joined with a ball-and-socket type of hinge, rather than with a toothed hinge as is more common in other bivalves. They also still retain vestigial anterior and posterior auricles ("ears", triangular shell flaps) along the hinge line, a characteristic feature of scallops, though not of oysters. As is the case in all scallops, Spondylus spp. have multiple eyes around the edges of their mantle, and they have relatively well-developed nervous systems. Their nervous ganglia are concentrated in the visceral region, with recognisable optic lobes connected to the eyes."

And/or: "The taxonomic term Bivalvia was first used by Linnaeus in the 10th edition of his Systema Naturae in 1758 to refer to animals having shells composed of two valves.[3] More recently, the class was known as Pelecypoda, meaning "axe-foot" (based on the shape of the foot of the animal when extended). The name "bivalve" is derived from the Latin bis, meaning "two", and valvae, meaning "leaves of a door".[4] ("Leaf" is an older word for the main, movable part of a door. We normally consider this the door itself.) Paired shells have evolved independently several times among animals that are not bivalves; other animals with paired valves include certain gastropods (small sea snails in the family Juliidae),[5] members of the phylum Brachiopoda[6] and the minute crustaceans known as ostracods[7] and conchostracans."

"Bivalvia (/bˈvælviə/), in previous centuries referred to as the  Lamellibranchiata and Pelecypoda, is a class of marine and freshwater molluscs that have laterally compressed bodies enclosed by a shell consisting of two hinged parts. As a group, bivalves have no head {'headless'?} and they lack some usual molluscan organs, like the radula and the odontophore. The class includes the clamsoysterscocklesmusselsscallops, and numerous other families that live in saltwater, as well as a number of families that live in freshwater. The majority are filter feeders. The gills have evolved into ctenidia, specialised organs for feeding and breathing. Most bivalves bury themselves in sediment, where they are relatively safe from predation. Others lie on the sea floor or attach themselves to rocks or other hard surfaces. Some bivalves, such as the scallops and file shells, can swimShipworms bore into wood, clay, or stone and live inside these substances.

N.B. The word to describe "no head" is vestigial i.e., the remnants of a head.

'Little head'?

Teeth for a 'key'?

Continued: The shell of a bivalve is composed of calcium carbonate, and consists of two, usually similar, parts called valves. These valves are for feeding and for disposal of waste. These are joined together along one edge (the hinge line) by a flexible ligament that, usually in conjunction with interlocking "teeth" on each of the valves, forms the hinge. This arrangement allows the shell to be opened and closed without the two halves detaching. The shell is typically bilaterally symmetrical, with the hinge lying in the sagittal plane. Adult shell sizes of bivalves vary from fractions of a millimetre to over a metre in length, but the majority of species do not exceed 10 cm (4 in).

Bivalves have long been a part of the diet of coastal and riparian human populations. Oysters were cultured in ponds by the Romans, and mariculture has more recently become an important source of bivalves for food. Modern knowledge of molluscan reproductive cycles has led to the development of hatcheries and new culture techniques."

"The description of the region by the word Argentina has been found on a Venetian map in 1536....In English, the name "Argentina" comes from the Spanish language; however, the naming itself is not Spanish, but ItalianArgentina (masculine argentino) means in Italian "(made) of silver, silver coloured", derived from the Latin argentum for silver. In Italian, the adjective or the proper noun is often used in an autonomous way as a substantive and replaces it and it is said l'Argentina.

The name Argentina was probably first given by the Venetian and Genoese navigators, such as Giovanni Caboto. In Spanish and Portuguese, the words for "silver" are respectively plata and prata and "(made) of silver" is plateado and prateado, although "argento" for "silver" and "argentado" for "covered in silver" exist in Spanish. Argentina was first associated with the silver mountains legend, widespread among the first European explorers of the La Plata Basin."

Among the Loyalists settled in Digby, was John Edison from Newark, New Jersey. He brought his family with him and remained until 1810. In April 1799, he was appointed director of the town marsh, and in 1808, assessor.

And/or: Apollo[a] is one of the Olympian deities in classical Greek and Roman religion and Greek and Roman mythology. Apollo has been recognized as a god of archery, music and dance, truth and prophecy, healing and diseases, the Sun and light, poetry, and more. One of the most important and complex of the Greek gods, he is the son of Zeus and Leto, and the twin brother of Artemis, goddess of the hunt. He is considered to be the most beautiful god and is represented as the ideal of the kouros (ephebe, or a beardless, athletic youth). Apollo is known in Greek-influenced Etruscan mythology as Apulu....

The name Apollo—unlike the related older name Paean—is generally not found in the Linear B (Mycenean Greek) texts, although there is a possible attestation in the lacunose form ]pe-rjo-[ (Linear B: ]𐀟𐁊-[) on the KN E 842 tablet,[6][7][8] though it has also been suggested that the name might actually read "Hyperion" ([u]-pe-rjo-[ne]).....The etymology of the name is uncertain. The spelling Ἀπόλλων (pronounced [a.pól.lɔːn] in Classical Attic) had almost superseded all other forms by the beginning of the common era, but the Doric form, Apellon (Ἀπέλλων), is more archaic, as it is derived from an earlier *Ἀπέλjων. It probably is a cognate to the Doric month Apellaios (Ἀπελλαῖος),[10] and the offerings apellaia (ἀπελλαῖα) at the initiation of the young men during the family-festival apellai (ἀπέλλαι).[11][12] According to some scholars, the words are derived from the Doric word apella (ἀπέλλα), which originally meant "wall," "fence for animals" and later "assembly within the limits of the square."[13][14] Apella (Ἀπέλλα) is the name of the popular assembly in Sparta,[13] corresponding to the ecclesia (ἐκκλησία). R. S. P. Beekes rejected the connection of the theonym with the noun apellai and suggested a Pre-Greek proto-form *Apalyun.[15]

Sutton Hoo purse clasp: Wolfs / eagles and ducks.

Mad, bad, sad or glad?

Several instances of popular etymology are attested by ancient authors. Thus, the Greeks most often associated Apollo's name with the Greek verb ἀπόλλυμι (apollymi), "to destroy".  [16] Plato in Cratylus connects the name with ἀπόλυσις (apolysis), "redemption", with  ἀπόλουσις (apolousis), "purification", and with ἁπλοῦν ([h]aploun), "simple",[17] in particular in reference to the Thessalian form of the name, Ἄπλουν, and finally with Ἀειβάλλων (aeiballon), "ever-shooting". Hesychius connects the name Apollo with the Doric ἀπέλλα (apella), which means "assembly", so that Apollo would be the god of political life, and he also gives the explanation σηκός (sekos), "fold", in which case Apollo would be the god of flocks and herds.[18] In the ancient Macedonian language πέλλα (pella) means "stone,"[19] and some toponyms may be derived from this word: Πέλλα (Pella,[20] the capital of ancient Macedonia) and Πελλήνη (Pellēnē/Pellene)....

Arrow of time?

Apollo's chief epithet was Phoebus (/ˈfbəs/ FEE-bəsΦοῖβοςPhoibos Greek pronunciation: [pʰó͜i.bos]), literally "bright".[26] It was very commonly used by both the Greeks and Romans for Apollo's role as the god of light. Like other Greek deities, he had a number of others applied to him, reflecting the variety of roles, duties, and aspects ascribed to the god. However, while Apollo has a great number of appellations in Greek myth, only a few occur in Latin literature....


Lyceus (/lˈsəs/ ly-SEE-əsΛύκειοςLykeios, from Proto-Greek *λύκη), "light". The meaning of the epithet "Lyceus" later became associated with Apollo's mother Leto, who was the patron goddess of Lycia (Λυκία) and who was identified with the wolf (λύκος)....Delphinius (/dɛlˈfɪniəs/ del-FIN-ee-əsΔελφίνιοςDelphinios), literally "Delphic", after Delphi (Δελφοί). An etiology in the Homeric Hymns associated this with dolphins.....Aphetor (/əˈftər/ ə-FEE-tərἈφήτωρAphētōr), from ἀφίημι, "to let loose".....Clytotoxus (/ˌkltɒˈtɒksəs/ KLY-toh-TOK-səsΚλυτότοξοςKlytótoxos), "he who is famous for his bow", the renowned archer.....Clytotoxus (/ˌkltɒˈtɒksəs/ KLY-toh-TOK-səsΚλυτότοξοςKlytótoxos), "he who is famous for his bow", the renowned archer.....Hecaërgus (/ˌhɛkiˈɜːrɡəs/ HEK-ee-UR-gəsἙκάεργοςHekaergos), literally "far-shooting".....Hecebolus (/hɪˈsɛbələs/ hiss-EB-əl-əsἙκηβόλοςHekēbolos), "far-shooting."

kiss curl describes a lock of hair curling onto the face and usually plastered down. Although the curl could be flattened with saliva (hence its alternative name spit curl), soap or hair lotion is more typically used.

Question. Did the Sphinx Temple have an alabaster floor?  And/or is 'Bastet' a link to same word?

Apollo: Curl or knot?

And/or: This helps us to understand the relationship at Rome of Janus and the White Goddess Cardea who is mentioned at the end of Chapter Four as the Goddess of Hinges who came to Rome from Alba Longa. She was the hinge on which the year swung—the ancient Latin, not the Etruscan year—and her importance as such is recorded in the Latin adjective cardinalis—as we say in English 'of cardinal importance'—which was also applied to the four main .winds; for winds were considered as under the sole direction of the Great Goddess until Classical times. As Cardea she ruled over the Celestial Hinge at the back ofthe North Wind around which, as Varro explains in his De Re Rustica, the mill-stone of the Universe revolves. This conception appears most plainly in the Norse Edda, where the giantesses Fenja and Menja, who turn the monstrous mill-stone Grotte in the cold polar night, stand for the White Goddess in her complementary moods of creation and destruction. Elsewhere in Norse mythology the Goddess is nine-fold: the nine giantesses who were joint-mothers of the hero Rig, alias Heimdall, the inventor of the Norse social system, similarly turned the cosmic mill. Janus was perhaps not originally double-headed: he may have borrowed this peculiarity from the Goddess herself who at the Carmentalia, the Carmenta Festival in early January, was addressed by her celebrants as 'Postvorta and Antevorta'—'she who looks both back and forward'. However, a Janus with long hair and wings appears on an early stater of Mallos, a Cretan colony in Cilicia. He is identified with the solar hero Talus, and a bull's head appears on the same coin. In similar coins of the late fifth century B.C. he holds an eight-rayed disc in his hand and has a spiral of Immortality sprouting from his double head.

Qubbet el-Hawa or "Dome of the Wind" is a site on the western bank of the Nile, opposite Aswan, that serves as the resting place of ancient nobles and priests from the Old and Middle Kingdoms of ancient Egypt.

She whistles for the magical breeze that is presently to save the Mariner's life. Here again Coleridge is beautifully exact. The White Goddess Cardea, as has been mentioned, was in charge of the four cardinal winds; mythologically the most important was the North Wind at the back of which she had her starry castle, close to the polar hinge of the Universe. This was the same wind that blew in answer to Gwion's final riddle in the Romance and helped to liberate Elphin, and the wind which, according to Hecataeus, gave its name to the Hyperborean priesthood of Apollo. Whistling three times in honour of the White Goddess is the traditional witch way of raising the wind; hence the proverbial unluckiness of 'a crowing hen and a whistling maid'. Til give thee a wind.' 'And I an¬ other.'—as the witches say in Macbeth. ... 'All the quarters that they know, I' the Shipman's card.' The close connexion of winds with the Goddess is also shown in the widespread popular belief that only pigs and goats (both anciently sacred to her) can see the wind, and in the belief that mares can conceive merely by turning their hindquarters to the wind.

"No one is born to hate. Love comes more naturally to the heart" [key]. [Nelson Mandela].

"Graffiti" (usually both singular and plural) and the rare singular form "graffito" are from the Italian word graffiato ("scratched").[6][1][2] The term "graffiti" is used in art history for works of art produced by scratching a design into a surface. A related term is "sgraffito",[7] which involves scratching through one layer of pigment to reveal another beneath it. This technique was primarily used by potters who would glaze their wares and then scratch a design into them. In ancient times graffiti were carved on walls with a sharp object, although sometimes chalk or coal were used. The word originates from Greek γράφεινgraphein—meaning "to write"......"

Side note: "Depictions of the ‘Driving the Four Calves’ ritual can be found in both mortuary and non-mortuary temples. There were scenes from a statue cult too, paralleled only in the enigmatic temple made by Thutmose III for his father, Thutmose II (mentioned above). Similarly inconclusive is the fact that some blocks refer to: ‘Amun foremost of Ipet Isut (Karnak)’, or to Tutankhamun as ‘Ruler of Ipet Isut’. However, Hatshepsut is ‘Lord of Ipet Isut’ at Deir el-Bahri on the West Bank! Even the description of the temple as a ‘Mansion of Millions of Years’ does not confirm that it was a mortuary structure, as this may be seen for instance in Luxor Temple." {'Ancient Egypt' / NOV-DEC 2023}.

The talisman lay on top of the mummy's actual heart and was tightly bound in the bandages.'' [Page 256 'Immagining the World Into Existence'].

He can indeed 'see' [i.e.,understand] those 'altered states' that this subject has defined for thousands of years [in relation to A/B/C - i.e., 'Macro'] - and defines them like no other - almost in a poetic style - but as soon as anything relating to the 'serpent' is mentioned [this readers opinion only] he falls right off his very own precipice, [ 'Micro']. Mr Sitchin does the same - not quite; however as extreme as Mr Icke.

''At the precipice we change.''  Keanu Reeves. ['The Day the Earth Stood Still' / 2008].

"They build their individual towers of Babel which fall, as a rule, according to the law of all towers of Babel, and experience, sooner or later, a salutary fall, as is the teaching of the 16th card of the Tarot. They do not fall from a real height into a real abyss; it is only from an imaginary height that they fall only to the ground, i.e., they learn the lesson that we human beings of today have all learned or have still to learn..." [Taken from the book by the author Tomberg].

Question. Has that single {obsession?} been seeded from elsewhere? i.e.,...

"It is clear - and other mediums confirm this - that people like me are chosen to do our work. I've often been asked, who does the choosing, and i always answer: ' I wish i knew! Because i'd like to have a few words with him! ' I was often aware, however, that certain people were training me, particular when i was healing, including the doctor who had first made contact with me {i.e.,deceased}. I saw a lot of him during those early days, and began to communicate with him telepathically...Other spirits arrived, wanting to work with me. Two of them i hesitated to write about, because i realise that the stories sound so incredible. There was a phase when i began seeing rather frightening pictures of snakes, and found myself writing a lot of poetry. I was in bed one night when a man appeared and said: 'I'm William Blake, and i'd like to work with you.' It was he who was sending me the drawings. At that time i had no idea who he was. All i knew, was that i thought his pictures were creepy. I said, 'Please go away. I don't want this'. When a friend told me that Blake was a famous mystical artist and poet, i went to the library to find out more about him, and saw drawings exactly like those he had been sending me. After about two weeks of being shown these terrifying pictures, i finally said to him: 'Look, will you please push off! ' I never saw him again.

"Despite his success Icke wrote that in 1989 was a time of considerable personal despair, and it was during this period he began to feel a presence around him...Icke visited B. Shine four times - during the third meeting in 1990 he felt ''something like a spiders web on his face...'' [Wiki/D. Icke].

Analogy of same..."I often reflected that my majestic master could easily have been an emperor or world-shaking warrior had his mind been centered on fame or worldly achievement. He had chosen instead to storm those inner citadels of wrath and egotism whose fall is the height of a man." [Extract from the book 'Autobiography of a Yogi' ]. Try ''giant''.

Shadow = ''archon'' ?


Every village has one?

A present day example..."Shortly after film school i was elevated to get into Art College to finally study a fine arts degree...Unfortunately , both the experience of film school and art school were littered with an array of tough challenges. And although i was at long last, pursuing my ambition of being an artist, i was steadily becoming a little worse mentally each day, aligning myself with a coterie of the wrong sort of people in London and setting myself up for a colossal fall." [Taken from the book by Q. S. Lam].

God is in the detales (details)As an example, {i.e.,in relation to an understanding of the 'serpent' symbol} - page 202 'Genesis Revisited'/ Z. Sitchin under the heading 'The Emblem of Entwined Serpents' "In the biblical tale of Adam and Eve in the garden of Eden, the antagonist of the lord god who had caused them to acquire 'knowing' [ the ability to procreate] was the Serpent, Nahash in Hebrew. The term has two other meanings: 'he who knows secrets' and 'he who knows copper'. These other meanings or word plays are found in the Sumerian epithet BUZUR for Enki, which meant 'he who solves secrets' and 'he of the metal mines'. I have therefore suggested in previous writings that, in the original Sumerian version, the 'Serpent' was Enki. His emblem was entwined serpents, it was the symbol of his cult center at Eridu [a], of his African domains in general [b], and of the pyramids in particular [c]; and it appeared on Sumerian illustrations on cylinder seals of the events described in the bible. What did the emblem of entwined serpents- the symbol for medicine and healing to this very day- represent? The discovery by modern science of the double helix structure of DNA offers the answer: the entwined serpents emulated the structure of the genetic code, the secret knowledge of which enabled Enki to create the Adam and then grant Adam and Eve the ability to procreate. The emblem of Enki as a sign of healing was invoked by Moses when he made a nehash nehosheth- a 'copper serpent'- to halt an epidemic afflicting the Israelites. Was the involvement of copper in the triple meanings of the term and in the making of the copper serpent by Moses due to some unknown role of copper in genetics and healing."

'Serpent' in relation to 'the fall' - by way of - mettle of the mind?

Walter Tull. Military Cross. A team mate of the 'Cobblers'. One of the first.

Something closer to the 'mark'.

A more closer to the 'mark' definition {understanding?} of same principle..."Adrian Gilbert, who was previously mentioned, has written several books on the subject of ancient knowledge and esoteric wisdom. In his book 'Signs in the Sky' he noted that the term 'serpent' was frequently used in ancient times to define a shadow cast by the sun. I couldn't help remembering that the Celtic cross in Northamptonshire shows an image of intertwined serpents on the circular head. This would make sense if the cross were used for measurements using the shadow of the sun, and a shadow was regarded in ancient times as a serpent." [From the book by K. Gest].

All things whether animate or inanimate have their 'flip side'. Positive/negatives. That ''duality'' principle that ALL use even before the written word came into common use.

Serpent of chaos?

'Shadow' in relation to ''the fall'' {S/W?}. All as a means...

Question. What would ''anima'' {positive aspect} be represented by? AND what direction would it be associated with, i.e.,bottom up or top down?

Something even closer to the 'mark': "....the focus of spiritual initiation and evolution were related as an ''unveiling of Isis''....The reference to being ''conceived'' through the goddess is a clear relation to ''divine birth'' i.e.,to be ''born again''....It is also a reference to the 'Serpent Power'. Isis and sister are the goddess of the serpent power. Being 'born' of them means being born of elevated consciousness....which is the innate life force, latent in every human being." [Page 191 'Egyptian Book of the Dead' / M. Ashby].

''The lengthened shadow of man is history...'' Quote from within.


''Meanders'' in a different form. 'See' it?

"There is more to the serpent than meets the eye. Its coils lie at the very foundation of the Western world, and so it is no wonder that is was the foundation stone of the West's greatest myths and legends." Back cover to the book 'The Serpent Grail: The Truth Behind the Holy Grail, The Philosopher's Stone and the Elixir of Life' by P. Gardiner and G. Osborn.

Another example but now in the 'Macro' sense of the 'word' {i.e.,'serpent' }..."As mentioned, the lengthwise {E/W?} axis of Izapa's ballcourt {Mayan culture} is aligned to the December solstice horizon. A monument on the eastern end of the ballcourt shows one of the 'Hero Twins' standing victorious over a completely fallen Seven Macaw {who must be deposed before One Hunahpa can be 'reborn'}. On the western end of the ballcourt we find a throne and several small monuments that each encode the different metaphors by which the alignment was understood. The throne itself has carved legs between which a solar god's head, or solar Ahau face, is emerging. This birth scene faces eastward down the axis of the ballcourt toward the December solstice sunrise, where the convergence of solstice sun and 'dark rift' was tracked. Clearly, the throne depicts the future alignment as a birth. Next to the throne we find a circular stone ring in which a stone ball was placed. In the symbolism of the ball game the December solstice sun is the game ball and the dark rift {or Calactic Center} is the goal ring. Finally, next to the ring and ball we find a serpents head, which, like most ballcourt markers, originally had a solar Ahau face in its mouth. This is the devouring end-of-age image of the sun in the snake's mouth - implying that death must precede rebirth." [From the book 'Galactic Alignment: The Transformation of Consciousness According to Mayan, Egyptian, and Vedic Traditions' by J. M. Jenkins].

'Joined at the hip': {therefore Gemini/Thigh constellation links}?

'Shadow' in relation to 'light' as a means to a further {personal?} understanding, {as is the intention of the word 'Throne' in relation to 'West'}. Nothing else. ''End-of-age'' in relation to 'the tail end' of something begins the process {beginning} of something else - defined as the 'end of the world' i.e., death/rebirth {DECEMBER 2012}. Or more to the point {in the 'macro' sense of the 'word'} - the beginning of a new age, i.e., Aquarius - thereafter new symbols {archetypes?} used - but which still explains/explores that SAME subject material {in the form of a 'journey'?}.


In 'journey' form?

"In the old religion a snake symbolizes the Inner Wisdom that is intuition." [Extract found and enlarged elsewhere].

"...they have adopted that of Gnosis, which represents simply the notion of learning by intuition." quote within the book by E. Levi.

'God is in the details'.

Mysticism is the source and root of all religions." [Quote from the book by Tomberg]. Link to the word ''Gnosis'' and what it implies, i.e.,in relation to that universal framework and/or the contents of this web page... What the author finally defines as ''spiritual touch'' or ''intuition''.

'Devil in the details'?

"The word 'spiritual' should be associated with the word 'eyes'. This is a reference to the eyes of the mind or heart. To see is to understand." [From the book by T. Nottingham].

A side step..."As for the serpent , the Bible sometimes employs it to symbolize healing and genuine wisdom, but its subtlety is usually sinister. For it came straight from the abhorred fertility cults of the Canaanites and Aramaeans. ['Eve' originally, may not have been derived from 'hay', [life], but from 'hiwya', the Aramaic for snake]......."But 'J' [in relation to the 'authors of the Bible i.e., J, P, D, E ], improves on these traditions by using the serpent to stand for the duality of good and evil, which was familiar to the Persians, and later found a way into the Hebrew religion." [Chapter 9, 'The History of Ancient Israel'. Mentioned elsewhere]. i.e.,..

'internal' ?

Continued: "...The brain is therefore an organ effecting mimicry, choosing what it is going to mime. It mimes accordingly. Now relevant mimicry is precisely what the Book of Genesis understands by 'cunning' when it says that - " the serpent was more cunning than any other wild creature that the lord god had made" {Genesis iii, 1}. It is, as it were the 'psychological' principle of the serpent, just as enfoldment and movement in a closed circle is its 'dynamic' principle, [i.e.,from 'uncoiled' to coiled. Explained elsewhere. This readers input]. To be cunning is to mime wisdom." [Taken from the book by Tomberg]. ALL as a representation of something. That something that defines a learning process. Represented as 'intelligence' in relation to 'wisdom', i.e.,as represented in one form of expression, with the figures 'Virgil' and 'Beatrice'. Enlarged elsewhere. The real question is - if only for this reader- fact or fiction. A possibility or not?

'Serpent Power' by Sebai Ashby - Just as Dennis Hauck explains Alchemy like no other [if only for this reader,i.e., it was Mr Haucks well grounded understanding - of a difficult subject - that gave this reader his initial inspiration to delve deeper in order to understand the whole] - then Mr Ashby does the same for the ''serpent'', i.e.,what it represents. Try ''precipice'' in the usual box.

This subject not only explains what the 'serpent' truly represents, [as well as other words such as ''copper'' and ''triple'' as already proven]- but understanding the 'divine' relative to A/B/C gives clues as to where that 'start point' is most likely, i.e.,the '12th planet', should there be one, cannot be in [A], the physical world. Think about it, relative to chapter 5, 'The Zelator' and...

"The 'primal revelation', which is referred to by theology and to which natural religion is due, is the hope and faith, which vibrates both in the whole world and in each particular being [generally as a subconscious conviction], that life proceeds from a 'holy' source, that it flows towards an end of supreme worth, and that it is 'gift, benediction and vocation." [Extract taken from the book by Tomberg]. Together with...

A representation of higher or lower or both?

"In speaking of 'higher' or 'lower' worlds, i do not mean to describe an actual physical relation; for in the realm of the spiritual there is no such division, and the words 'high' and 'low' refer only to the place of any particular 'world' on the ladder of causality. To call a world higher signifies that it is more primary, more basic in terms of being close to a primal source of influence; while a lower world would be a secondary world- in a sense a copy. Yet that copy is not just an imitation but rather a whole system, with a more or less independent life of its own, its own variety of experience, characteristics, and properties. The world in which we ordinarily live, with all that it embraces, is called the 'world of action': and it includes the world of both our sensual and non-sensual apprehension. But this world of action itself, is not all of the same essence and same quality. The lower part of the world of action is what is known as the 'world of physical nature' and of more or less mechanical processes...that is to say, the world where nature law prevails; while above this world of physical nature, is another part of the same world, which we may call the 'world of spiritual action'. What is common to these two domains[i.e.,A+B, this readers input] of the 'world of action' is man, the human creature so situated between them that he partakes of both." [page 4, 'The Thirteen Petalled Rose' by A. Steinsaltz]. Think about it, relative to, ...

On what side of the equal sign would 'B' be placed if it was indeed 'primary' over 'A'. Left or right of the equal sign? What would that answer relate to... relative to 'C'?

As a side note - just as Mr Ashby and Mr Hauck have been mentioned - the works of Tomberg - once again; if only for this reader - does the same in relation to the those same universal keys and principles being expressed [and therefore represented] - but now within the Christian and Catholic sub-division - BY WAY OF - the Hermetic one. There is a difference. Can you by now 'see' it yet? If not - study more. As one does in any subject - depending on interest.

Tower {of the fish}?

"...This is why we have repeated so many times in these 'Letters' that practical [i.e.,lived] Hermeticism is neither occult science, nor magic, not gnosis, nor mysticism - but rather their synthesis. For it is a 'tree' not a 'tower'. And it is man himself; the whole man - who is at one at the same time philosopher and magician, gnostic and mystic - who is the 'tree'. " [Extract from the book by Tomberg. 'Letter 16' ].

Tower of Babel? Question. Why should the tree be different? What does it represent?

nhy"A working example: "The process John went through to have his revelatory experience, combined with the content of the experience, reveals a spiritual, mystical approach to life. The mystical approach is founded upon a belief that each of us can have an immediate, intuitive perception of spiritual truths {eureka?} that transcend ordinary intellectual understanding by experiencing a direct, intimate union of our soul with god." ['Wisdom of the 4th Way']. 'See' it?

Try ''tongue'' to see something from the Egyptian point of view.

Information gained by way of an ’imaginary’ exercise. Choose your own names. Fill in the blanks. For ‘aspiration / inspiration’ use only, i.e., what these authors refer to as 'practical imagination', [cognitive faculty / eye of horus etc. Explained elsewhere], as opposed to the 'fantasy' aspect of same. Positive aspect of the imagination over its negative. Islams equivalent, the word Barzakh, i.e.,"Barzakh is the world of the imagination that stands as a mesocosm between the spiritual and material worlds. It is the 'interworld', as Henry Corbin calls it." ['The Universal Tree and the Four Birds' by Ibn Arabi].

''Net'' or ''spiders web''?


''Fantasy {phantasia} meant a subjective figment of the mind without objective validity.''

A working example: "The imagination is a 'sun', in the soul of man, acting in his own sphere, as the sun of the earth acts in him." [ Paracelsus].

"Two ways of making a good living....There are two ways of making a good living. One is the result of hard working, and the other, the result of the imagination [requires work, too, of course]. Some may not believe it, but i spent hours perfecting whatever i did." [Taken from Part four, 'on achievement', from the book, 'Striking Thoughts' {Bruce Lee's Wisdom for Daily Living'} by J. Little].

Or what the author of 'The Sacred History' and 'The Secret History of the World' calls 'idealism',i.e.,"The philosophical term for the 'mind came first' view is 'idealism'. It's a confusing term, because outside academia it is more often used to mean the pursuit of high ideals, while students of philosophy, at least those studying in Anglo-American tradition, encounter it as a quaint theory of knowledge which no one really believes any more and which was last seriously defended in the eighteen century by Bishop Berkeley. For most of history though, idealism was a cosmology and an all embracing heartfelt philosophy of life". [Preface to the book, 'The Sacred History' by J. Black].

clock2Analogy of same? "...Assuming that irrefutable form of idealism which contents itself with the demonstration that, knowledge being a function of the mind, as the materialists not merely concede, but insist, the universe as we know it is equivalent to the contents of that mind; and assuming also that the mind contains a power able to control thought; then there is no absurdity in asserting that mind may be the master of matter..." [Extract from the book 'The Magister' ].

"Imagination' is a mental force with power to create matter and also to move it like a magnet. 'God' imagined the world into existence, and through our imagination we become co-creators....An individuals imagination plays a crucial role in moulding that world around that individual. It exerts a pressure on the fabric of space-time, pushing or pulling it, so that the ripples start locally, before spreading out across the universe." [Same book].

Practical example: "You can only dream as far as you can see."

How far?

"My family wanted me to have an arranged marriage - the oldest story in the world - i didn't want one, had a lot of secret relationships, so i ran away - until i decided to confront the problem instead of running from it. Wrote a book about it, thinking it would be a clever way of confronting my parents. It could have gone wrong but it didn't. It worked out. I was just recently looking around the family table at Xmas and seeing all my nephews and nieces now going out with Muslim and Christian - and all this because one of us broke the mould." [ Sathnam Sanghera: Saturday Live / Radio 4 / 20.1.24].

Frog/egg/serpent/bird. Connect them in the internal sense of the word. ''Sweat of the brow'' 'Salt' therefore ''grounded'' link.

"The ancients lived in a cosmos concerned for humanity, and higher mathematics was one way of describing that concern. Some people are hostile to mysticism because they see it as a lapse into lazy or infantile thinking. That is not the case here. The thinking is extraordinary complex and insightful - but it is not empirical thinking. It is the thinking of 'idealism' working itself out into the world and discovering the way the world works, by means of, 'this way' of thinking." [Chapter 6, same book].

"To Jung, the imagination was the key to the secret of nature in alchemy, and the secret of the self in analytical psychology. The 'imaginatio' as the alchemists understood it, is in truth a key that opens the door to the secret of the Opus''. [Extract from the book by M. Katz].

"Mysticism is the source and root of all religions." [Quote from the book by Tomberg]. Link to the word ''Gnosis'' and what it implies, i.e.,in relation to that universal framework and/or the contents of this web page.

Understanding those universal keys within a 'framework' - defines all the above - gives them all - possible substance - a possible form to work on. Before those bigger questions are asked.

Example of same,[positive aspect], could be 'visualizing' oneself in an interview prior to the actual event. Going over what you would like to say, and how you would say it, in order to give a good impression. As a means of giving your self the best possible chance of achieving something that one has an interest in.

Another example could be... Several friends, [numbers / characters yet unknown], or 'outward bound’ participants come together on a climbing expedition. A ‘fatal’ accident occurs and they all find themselves you know where, [ ‘Afterlife’]. Fortunately each individual has a good understanding of certain subjects. Mythology, Astrology, Sciences, Physics, Religions e.t.c., They pool all these resources of information together and with additional information acquired from the individuals they meet over there begin to understand the purpose of their new environment. Which falls in line with all known ‘esoteric’ lore as briefly explained an example. [ use this link].

For example there will be a Muslim / Asian character who amongst other things understands the Quran. Who now besides trying to understand his own religion in relation to his new environment; and visu/versu; goes in search for his older brother who was a member of the Muslim Brotherhood, and who ‘died’ many years previously, [suicide bomber]. He himself, [older brother], since being ‘over there’ has been waiting for his expected ‘just rewards’, [twelve virgins plus paradise. Or is it twenty- four?]. Needless to say he is not a happy chap when nothing shows up. Not even Allah/God.

Every one agrees regardless of culture or religion that god = allah and allah = god, i.e., Yahwah/YHWH. As explained for the ‘Allah’ equivalent of same ... in that ‘third and final message’...The Quran:- In such books as ‘The Mystical Dimensions of Islam’. By A. Schimmel. As an example. The Quran is composed of what is termed as suras. The largest of which are at its beginning. The smallest towards the end. In other words, recalling Mr Bohr's discipline...from a broad base to a fine point. Do you see anything? One of those ancient symbols. Mentioned elsewhere. Islams esoteric equivalent... are the ’Muqatta-at’. Those ’letters’ that prefix certain sura-s, that not even Muhammad understood. Or at least decided not to mention. It IS surprising however that no mention was made, of same, even within Islams 'Hadiths'. More surprisingly...not even the question.... as what they were, or their importance, has ever been recorded. Every generation since the creation of the Quran up to the present day, have speculated on what those letters mean. Yet no answer came from either Muhammad or within those Hadiths. There has to be a reason... as there is in all things...That inner one? {i.e., in the individual sense of the word}.

Inner or outer?

...The starry inscription at one's birth, i came to understand, is not that man is a puppet of his past. Its messages is rather a prod to pride; the very heavens seek to arouse man's determination to be free from every limitation. God created each man as a soul, dowered with individuality, hence essential to the universal structure, whether in the temporary role of pillar or parasite. His freedom is final and immediate, if he so wills; it depends not on outer but inner victories." [Extract from the book on the life of Paramahansa Yogananda. Enlarged elsewhere ]. Try ''parasite'' {and/or 'its' variations}.

"We now begin a series of seven Surahs [40-46] to which are affixed the Abbreviated letters Ha - Mim [i.e.,part of the Muqatta-at collection]. Chronologically they all belong to the same period, the later Makkan period, and they immediately follow the last Surah in time. As to the precise meaning of Ha - Mim no authoritative explanation is available. If Mim here has a significance to a line similar elsewhere, i.e.,Alif, Lam, Mim - it means the end of things, the last day, and all these Surahs [seven] direct our special attention to that ''Ha''; the emphatic guttural, in contrast to the softer breathing of Alif; may be meant to suggest that the Beginning - is only for the end; the present for the future...But this is mere conjecture, and should be taken for no more than it is worth." [Introduction to Surah 40 of the Quran, by Yusuf Ali]. Think about it in relation to what 'forty' and 'seven' represent within this subject. The tail end of something begins the start of something else? Then try ''ha ha''.

'Alchemy' equivalent: "Neophyte grade {MThIHD} ; meaning 'converted'. The root of the word 'converted', other than its obvious usage in religious terminology, is 'to turn around'. It signifies a turning around of attention to that which is not apparent. It is when the person in Plato's cave first wonders about the shadows on the wall and turns around to see from where they are being cast. This begins a new phase in their life, hence 'Neophyte'; one 'new' to that direction...The word MThChIL is also similar to MThIChH meaning 'stretched', 'extended'. The conversion or transformation that goes on at Neophyte is one where the person is stretched...Interesting by gematria, the word has the value of 488 , the same value as PhThCh, meaning 'gate, 'entrance' 'insight'. " [Extract from the book 'The Magister' ].

Landscape equivalent - a u-turn. See it?

"Indeed the material Ka'ba in the city of Makka is kept clean for the pilgrims. How much cleaner should one keep the inner Ka'ba upon which truth will gaze. After these preparations the inner pilgrim wraps himself in the light of the holy spirit, transforming his material shape into the inner essence, and circumambulates the Ka'ba of the heart, inwardly reciting the second divine name - Allah, the proper name of god. He moves in circles because the path of essence is not straight but circular. ITS end is its beginning. Then he goes to the 'Arafat' of the heart, that inner place of supplication, that place where one hopes to know the secret of 'There is no god but He, Who is One and Who has no partners......" [Chapter 18, 'Secret of Secrets' by Al - Jilani]. Think on it relative to what was once known as the ''Great Year.'' Also put ''supplication'' in the box.

Question. Any u-turn within that 'landscape'?

REFRESHER: Hebrew equivalent {i.e.,Deuteronomy}: "If you return to your god. If with all your heart and soul you obey his 'voice'. Then he will bring back your captives. Should you have been banished to the very sky's end your god will gather you again - even from there."

"The only books worth our attention are those which spring from the heart and in turn speak to the heart, the Sufis tell us, and by the 'heart' they do not mean the source of psychological feelings but something much more profound. 'Heart' can be understood as the very center of our psycho - physical being, as the meeting place of soul and mind or, more precisely, as the focal point [link to 'anchor'[key]], where the mind, which in itself is all knowledge or light, is reflected in the mirror of the 'soul'.....

Side note: ''Ramadan (Arabic: رَمَضَان, romanizedRamaḍān [ˤaːn];[a] also spelled Ramazan, Ramzan, Ramadhan or Ramathan) is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar,[9] observed by Muslims worldwide as a month of fasting (sawm), prayer, reflection and community.[10] A commemoration of Muhammad's first revelation,[11] the annual observance of Ramadan is regarded as one of the Five Pillars of Islam[12] and lasts twentynine to thirty days, from one sighting of the crescent moon to the next....

'Any 'heat' emitted?

"Head Jar"?

The word Ramadan derives from the Arabic root R-M-Ḍ (ر-م-ض) "scorching heat",[27] which is the Classical Arabic verb "ramiḍa (رَمِضَ)" meaning "become intensely hot – become burning; become scorching; be blazing; be glowing".

Ramadan is thought as one of the names of God in Islam by some, and as such it is reported in many hadiths that it is prohibited to say only "Ramadan" in reference to the calendar month and that it is necessary to say "month of Ramadan", as reported in Sunni,[28][29][30][31][32][33][34] Shia[35][36][37][38][39][40] and Zaydi[41] sources.''

Muslims hold that all scripture was revealed during Ramadan, the scrolls of Abraham, Torah, Psalms, Gospel, and Quran having been handed down on the first, sixth, twelfth, thirteenth (in some sources, eighteenth)[42] and twenty-fourth Ramadans,[year needed] respectively.[43][self-published source] Muhammed is said to have received his first quranic revelation on Laylat al-Qadr, one of five odd-numbered nights that fall during the last ten days of Ramadan.

Laylat al-Qadr is considered the holiest night of the year.[55][56] It is generally believed to have occurred on an odd-numbered night during the last ten days of Ramadan; the Dawoodi Bohra believe that Laylat al-Qadr was the twentythird night of Ramadan.'' [Wiki].

Continued: "The solar calendar yielded 12 months, each consisting of thirty days. Every day was associated with a mythic event...such as the 27th of ATHYS {our November 7}, which was the day that Horus and Set made peace after their struggle." [From the book by R. Clark].

Side note: "Sharatan and Mesarthim {Stars in Aries} constituted the 27th nakshatra {'Lunar Mansions'} - the Ashwins or horseman...The two horsemen corresponding to the Gemini of Rome, but figured as a horses head...'' [Page 82, 'Star Names Their Lore and Meaning']. Try ''Ashwin'' to make a connection to the greater whole. Part 2.

"Twentyseven is interesting, from the mathematical viewpoint, as the third power of the sacred three, thus as Plutarch noted, as first odd, or masculine cube. It also belongs to the lunar numbers, since the moon is at best visible 3x9 nights. Like 18, 27 appears frequently in traditions where 9 was of importance...In Russian folktales the hero often traverses 3x9 countries before reaching his goal. The number is common in the folk traditions of eastern Europe, such as collecting 27 flowers on St. John's night for protection or prognostication. In Lithuania describes the planting and growing of 3x9 rue, again for protective purposes. 27 is mentioned in ancient Egypt, but in a negative sense. In a board game with 30 squares, the 27th, called water, [wet/dry and/or 'lunar' link. This readers input]- means loss: the player who lands on it loses the game, and it has been speculated that dim memories of the dark moon are reflected in this negative result." [Taken from 'The Mystery of Numbers' by Annemarie Schimmel].

Egypt more 'solar' {'known'} than 'lunar' {'UNknown'} ? As a means...?

OR static/dynamic link?

Refresher: ''A doctors prognosis comes from the Latin 'to know before' {i.e., prediction}.''


Question. Can you see the connection between ''water'' ''dark'' and ''negative''? What about dry/light and positive? = ''reflection of a positive result''; represented as the full moon? Question 2. What would that answer indicate? Try ''cube'',i.e.,what does it represent? and why ''masculine''. Clue. Shadow or anima? As a start [or anchor] point, of something. Try ''twentyseven''.

Tablet of Menes: "Inscription bearing Hor-Aha's serekh together with a Nebty-name expressed with the game-board hieroglyph, which could be read mn."

Gebel Barkal lions. At rest/peace? Same lion form found buried next to King Hor-Aha at Abydos. "Still"?

Inverse: Head and feet?

Now in its positive sense of the 'word' {i.e., ''manifested''}: "As for jewellery, we cite only the bracelet of king Djer, {1st Dyn.} made of 27 elements each having the shape of a palace-facade crowned by a falcon. Thirteen gold parts, poured molten into a mold and then chiselled and burnished, alternate with fourteen turquoise elements." ['Sacred Science'].

Refresher: ''Turquoise is the traditional birthstone for December.''

And/or: ''In hieroglyphic texts, you often see signs enclosed in oval shapes, which are called cartouches. They are quite famous because the discovery that characters thus enclosed were alphabetic letters representing the name of Egyptian kings was the crucial first step toward deciphering the ancient Egyptian writing system.

'Cursus' at Stonehenge?


Eyes, nose and mouth.

From the brow to the 'tip' of the nose = length. Brow to brow = top piece or width. Anything?

"Abydos /əˈbdɒs/ (ArabicأبيدوسromanizedAbīdūs or ArabicافودromanizedAfūd;[1] Sahidic CopticⲈⲃⲱⲧ Ebōt) is one of the oldest cities of ancient Egypt, and also of the eighth nome in Upper Egypt. It is located about 11 kilometres (6.8 miles) west of the Nile at latitude 26° 10' N, near the modern Egyptian towns of El Araba El Madfuna and El Balyana. In the ancient Egyptian language, the city was called Abedju (ꜣbḏw or AbDw)(Arabic Abdu عبد-و).[2] The English name Abydos comes from the Greek Ἄβυδος, a name borrowed by Greek geographers from the unrelated city of Abydos on the Hellespont. Abydos name in hieroglyphs Abydos_(Ancient_Egypt)_name_in_hietoglyphs....."

Alte Burg. Described as an oval shape 'hippodrome'. The first of its kind.

"In Egyptian hieroglyphs, a cartouche /kɑːrˈtʃ/ is an oval with a line at one end tangent to it, indicating that the text enclosed is a royal name.[1] The first examples of the cartouche are associated with pharaohs at the end of the Third Dynasty, but the feature did not come into common use until the beginning of the Fourth Dynasty under Pharaoh Sneferu. While the cartouche is usually vertical with a horizontal line, if it makes the name fit better it can be horizontal, with a vertical line at the end (in the direction of reading). The ancient Egyptian word for cartouche was shenu, and the cartouche was essentially an expanded shen ringDemotic script reduced the cartouche to a pair of brackets and a vertical line.

Of the five royal titularies it was the prenomen (the throne name), and the "Son of Ra" titulary[2] (the so-called nomen name given at birth), which were enclosed by a cartouche."

Axe blade with the serekh of king Aha

Less well-known are the square cartouches. Egyptian rulers had more than one name: a personal name and several ones taken at their installation. During the first dynasties, the ruler's most important name was written in the square serekh, which means "that which makes known", i.e., the chosen identity of the ruler.

An example can be seen on the alabaster cup of King Djer, Narmer’s second successor. In the lower register, we can recognize a stylized representation of the façade of a palace. In the upper register, we can read the royal name, Djer. Finally, the square is surmounted by a falcon.

East to West?

We do not have religious literature from this early age, but when we are able to read sacred Egyptian texts, this bird represents the god Horus, who represented cosmic order and protected the king. It is likely – although we cannot prove it – that the falcon on the serekh represented the same deity, and therefore, the royal name inside the serekh is called his "Horus name".

Only king Peribsen, one of the rulers of the Second Dynasty, replaced the falcon with the animal that is usually associated with the god Seth, who represented chaos and was the opponent of Horus. His successor Khasekhemwy had a serekh with both animals. After these two unusual kings, the rulers of the Third Dynasty returned to the falcon serekh, while the kings of the Fourth Dynasty no longer stressed their Horus names, and instead focused on the names that were written in cartouches."

Side note: "Cartouche" = oval in shape like the 'Hippodrome'.

And/or: The nearby Hagia Irene ("Holy Peace") church was completed earlier and served as cathedral until the Great Church was completed. Besides Hagia Irene, there is no record of major churches in the city-centre before the late 4th century.[24] Rowland Mainstone argued the 4th-century church was not yet known as Hagia Sophia.[27] Though its name as the 'Great Church' implies that it was larger than other Constantinopolitan churches, the only other major churches of the 4th century were the Church of St Mocius, which lay outside the Constantinian walls and was perhaps attached to a cemetery, and the Church of the Holy Apostles.[24]

The church itself is known to have had a timber roof, curtains, columns, and an entrance that faced west.[24] It likely had a narthex and is described as being shaped like a Roman circus.[28] This may mean that it had a U-shaped plan like the basilicas of San Marcellino e Pietro and Sant'Agnese fuori le mura in Rome.[24] However, it may also have been a more conventional three-, four-, or five-aisled basilica, perhaps resembling the original Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem or the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem.[24] The building was likely preceded by an atrium, as in the later churches on the site.[29]

The first church on the site was known as the Magna Ecclesia (Μεγάλη ἘκκλησίαMegálē Ekklēsíā, 'Great Church')[21][22] because of its size compared to the sizes of the contemporary churches in the city.[13] According to the Chronicon Paschale, the church was consecrated on 15 February 360, during the reign of the emperor Constantius II (r. 337–361) by the Arian bishop Eudoxius of Antioch.[23][24] It was built next to the area where the Great Palace was being developed.

Continued: There has been no shortage of explanations for these changes, but in fact we just don’t know why Peribsen and Khasekhemwy preferred another animal, and why the rulers from the Fourth Dynasty on preferred other names.''

Working example: ''A late text says of Mut 'she is the mother of mothers who gives birth to every god, the wonderful snake who wound herself around her father Re and placed him on earth as Khons'...her most important center lay across from Hierakonpolis, and to her belonged the per-wer shrine....Khons-identified person is said to be able to penetrate into 'the finger, toe, body, arm, the knee and head of Osiris' and grow like the plants, being adorned 'like the turtles' {i.e., Spell 310 +311}. Covered with such a shell {'carapace'?}, the person becomes an incarnation of the moon god, though oppositiion to the rising sun of the east. 'Re lives, the turtle dies'....explained by the fact that the new crescent moon is first observed in the West each month as the sun is setting. He replaces Re in the underworld {i.e., the old man of the west}...illuminating the darkness for those on earth....Like Re identified with E/W: 'comes into being like Khepri'....wears the turquoise Menit necklace - over his 'shoulders'...and holds the Uas scepter {Was}...'Iam the double lock of hair that is on the bald'....only fully understood with Min -Amun-Bull-of-his-Mother...'' [Pages 78-80 'Hathor Rising' / A. Roberts].


Refresher: ''Fifteen represents the zenith of lunar power, and its relation to the moon can be deduced from the name of an old German measure called Mandel, 'little moon, part of a moon', which consisted of 15 items such as eggs or other small things....Sacred to Ishtar {'5'} + sum of first five integers as well as product of two sacred numbers {3x5} + quarter of 60 - highest number {of god} in Babylon culture...''

Venus? 8 beams?

Fifteen Stela's at the boundaries at Amarna? Can that number tell us anything about 'Nefertiti'?

Karnak {'the palaces'}. ''Mountain low, Valley high.''

Largest one in Egypt. Hatshepsut's at Karnac. Made of pink grante. Two of them 'penetrate' the ceiling at Karnac - according to some - because Thutmose III wanted to hide them. Disown them. In a certain spot on TOP of that 'ceiling' {purposely envisaged?}, one can LOOK BACK and 'SEE' where one has come from {hindsight/foresight?].

Side note: ''During recent excavations of the pole dwellings on the little LAKE  at Burgaeschi, in Canton Solothurn {'landlocked'?}, a group of boulders was discovered wrapped in the bark of birch trees. This very ancient conception of the 'magical' power of stones led to a higher level of culture to the similar importance attached to gems...Another myth belongs to the Navaho Indians of Arizona: In the days of the great darkness, the ancestors of the 'hero' saw the sky Father descending and the Earth Mother rising UP to meet him.They united, and on top of the 'mountain' where the union took place the ancestors found a little figure {'ishon'?}, made of turquoise. This turned into {or in another version gave birth to} Estsanatlehi, 'the woman who rejuvenates or transforms herself'....She was the mother or grandmother of the gods. '' {Page 98 'Alchemical Studies' / C. G. Jung].

Many other ''monuments'' built on springs. They saw them as ''direct connection to the underworld and envisioned the point where water comes out of the rock as a portal through which to speak to the ancestors {'AFAR'?}....International treaties were signed close to them, so the ancestors could be witnesses.''

[Page 141].

'Line of Sight'.

''When the son is brought to life by the opus, he becomes a ''warrior fire'' or a ''fighter of fire.'' [Page 148 'Alchemical Studies' / C.G. Jung].

A working example: "A late Neolithic or early Bronze Age monument that saw the creation of a cemetery in the Anglo-Saxon period has been uncovered in Deal by Kent Archaeological Projects (KAP). Working on the site of a housing development, the team has excavated over 90 inhumations, reflecting both the monument’s primary phase, and the subsequent early medieval use of the site. Many of the later graves contain ‘elite displays of material culture’, said Tim Allen, KAP’s director....



The monument was surrounded by a ring ditch 32m in diameter, 3.5m-wide, and 1.7m deep, and its first phase included the interment of crouched burials, some accompanied by distinctive Beaker vessels, inside this enclosed area. One of these was the skeleton of a 12-year-old boy who had been placed in a crouched position at the very centre of the site, together with two beakers. Dr Andrew Richardson, director of Isle Heritage CIC and an expert on Anglo-Saxon cemeteries in Kent, said the ‘Beaker-era monument’ sits within ‘a wider prehistoric funerary landscape’ on the ridge at Mill Hill, but the site also contains burials from the late 6th to late 7th centuries which ‘span the period of the Christian conversion.’

According to traditions established by the chronicler Bede (c.673-735), while much of England was settled by Angles and Saxons, Kent was settled by the Jutes. Archaeological evidence presents a more nuanced picture, however, reflecting a fusion of southern Scandinavian and Merovingian Frankish influences, as well as Romano-British traditions.

Most of the later burials were found outside the ring ditch, but inside the prehistoric enclosure the archaeologists found the c.AD 550 grave of a warrior who is thought to have died in battle because ‘the front of his skull was smashed in’ and his shield had been used to cover his face, said Tim. His grave goods included a ring sword featuring a garnet in its hilt, and a bronze bucket with two horse motifs. He had been laid to rest alongside a horse and a WOLF size dog, found in a large pit next to the main grave. This is ‘arguably the highest-status male-gendered Anglo-Saxon burial to come out of Kent in the 21st century’, said Andrew.

Another unusual find from the site was a set of scales, complete with ‘intricately decorated weights’, Tim said. Andrew explained that a comparable set had been found in Dover at Buckland cemetery in 1994. ‘I’m hoping that by comparing this new find with that set and others that have been found we can get more of an insight into the standard weights and measures that were being used in this period,’ Andrew said."

''Sion is a city in the southwestern Swiss canton of Valais. It’s known for 2 hilltop fortifications: the 13th-century Tourbillon Castle ruins and the Valère Castle complex, with a basilica housing an organ over 500 years old. The 15th-century Cathedral of Notre-Dame-du-Glarier and the conical Witches’ Tower are in the old town. The Majorie and Vidomnat towers house the Valais Art Museum’s regional art collection.''

''In Switzerland, canton is the name given to each of the twentythree states comprising the Swiss Confederation. Three cantons—Unterwalden, Basel, and Appenzell—are subdivided into demicantons, or half cantons, which function as full cantons; thus, there is often reference to twentysix states of Switzerland.''

Question. You could say. Whats the point? No financial or similar benefit could be gotten from it. Considering their ‘circumstances’. The benefit would be the verification [verily, verily. New Testament]- of the subject. Then for it to be used in their own environment / situation. This character is only mentioned as an example of the positive aspect of the ‘imaginary’ materials framework. Since 9/11 all authors have jumped on the proverbial bandwagon with predictable results. This variation; you may agree; or may not; has a positive twist. Not for the sake of making the story 'different'. But simply because that's the way the story line pans out, i.e.,sometimes the bad guys make good. Nor do we need this subject to inform us of that basic fact.

Everyone knows someone, either directly or indirectly, who while starting on the wrong foot/tack/path has managed to 'change' that situation around. Which fits in with all the amentioned authors.
